How To Buttercream A Tall Cake And Paint These Cute Decorations
We created this tall cake using a few of our favourite baking essentials and some of FMM’s adorable cutters to show you a simple technique for painting on icing, the style is in the form of a children’s book illustration.
1. For a moist cake, use 1kg of Golden Delight Madeira cake mix, baked in two 7" round cake tins. Simply add water and bake, then use a cake leveller to trim off the top of your cakes and cut each cake in half to create 4 layers.
2. Sandwich your layers together with buttercream. Use a cake lifter to position each layer on top of one another. Then, using a cranked palette knife, smooth the buttercream around the sides of your cake, continuing until the sides and top of the cake is fully covered.
3. Take a tall side scraper and hold it against the side of your cake (it helps to have your cake on a turntable).
