How To Create Sharp, Crisp Edges On Sugarpasted Cakes Using Bellissimo Flexi Smoothers
Discover the secret for creating sharp, crisp edges on sugarpasted cakes using Bellissimo Flexi Smoothers. They can be used on sugarpasted and marzipanned rich fruit cakes or on sponge cakes covered in ganache or buttercream. We have used a Madeira cake covered in buttercream and Antique Lace Sattina sugarpaste which has then been decorated using a ready-made edible lace, sprayed gold. The flexi smoothers come in three sizes which can be bought individually or as a set. Small set for 3" to 5" cakes, Medium set for 6" to 9" cakes, Large set for 10" plus cakes.
Step 1. Place your cake on the drum cake board and cover in buttercream using a side scraper and palette knife. Place the cake in the fridge for around 20 minutes so that the buttercream hardens. Take out of the fridge, sharpen the top edge with a palette knife and smooth over another thin layer of buttercream.
