My second tip is soft (not too soft) is to use a butter cream recipe. My favorite frosting recipe is known as the Italian meringue. It is not too sweet and there is no light and fluffy. Once you have your cake layers cool, wrap them in plastic wrap and freeze for at least several hours, you're better overnight.
Note: You can get high-sided frying pan at your local craft store, if you burn them, to make two layers, can be a single cut the cake. Wilton is a good brand. If you choose to do this, they are cooled, before they put in the freezer, then cut the cake. The round cake the size of each pre-cut cardboard that you plan to use you will need. Your cooperation with them, two on each cake to use as the basis for completion of each cake to slide under the cake.
Filling the cake: cake practice, I recommend that you fill the cake with plain icing. No fancy no moose yet? Cold cake with frosting layer is a mixture of butter solidifies quickly so as not to slide it around the cake.
Put your first layer cake is called the crumb coat. The crumb coat is a thin layer of icing that is used to seal in crumbs. This is without getting their filthy bread crumbs mixed, much easier to frost. In the Court of crumbs, you need to look since it covers a thick layer on the court at the end of the end. Once cake crumb coat, you must return it to the refrigerator or freezer to firm it slightly.
For now your final coat: cake crumb coating on a lot of shit for frosting to the top of the cake and turn table and a place holder. Taking care not to press the keys too hard now, with a spatula to spread out from your center. While turning the tables, I always use the back and forth motion.
Out further than the edge of the cake you must end with some icing. It should be fairly thick, scraping the excess later. Rotate the table, working a few of the icing of the cake and slowly down the side now. Please do not try to look it yet. The idea here is to get a thick butter cream on the cake of the whole, is to scrape it perfectly later. Until now the whole cake is covered, we will add it to the sides as needed. Now you are ready to scrape off some of the excess. Spatula at an angle to the vertical, slowly turning the tables, please use the end of it. Some of the icing is slightly higher than form a ledge on the cake.
Gets pretty good looking side once you start working the top. Spatula and a horizontal angle, turning the tables, I start from the opposite side with a spatula to scrape the ledge I spoke about you as before. What do the divet is not quiet down and scrape off too much.
You are perfect in the absolute it is if it is not so as to cover the uneven and some mistakes that have put a border around the cake on top of another or possibly decorative top edge and Please be aware of.
The final step is to heat the spatula in the hot water is to go the top one more time and once on the side to make it really smooth. Therefore, you will need a long wide spatula. You can store the cake in the refrigerator they found it becomes matte. Cream butter, because it absorbs some of them, just please make sure that there is no dominant odor-free.
