|Alternate your cake colors or flavors.|
|Cut and separate the layers while the cake is still frozen.|
|Dirty frosting crumb coats the cake.|
|The frosted bird cake prior to smoothing out.|
If you are doing the roses all over your cake, it's not necessary to smooth the frosting because you won't see it anyway.
For the birthday cake I put a buttercream blue bird on it.
For the church cake I used my 1M tip as suggested and did the roses. People seemed rather impressed with the roses, which was flattering considering it wasn't my idea and it was ridiculously easy to swirl frosting all over it.
|Prior to airbrushing. See the feathering? ARG.|
|Finished! Pink airbrush out of a can! Thanks Wilton!|
|Little Birdy told me it was yummy!|
|Raspberry and Vanilla Nut vertical cake.|
Here is the inside. Cool, huh? But see how the layers anen't snug? I think the simple syrup would have fixed that. It might not be necessary with a less dense cake but this one doesn't smoosh together. Also, this one didn't fall apart as badly as the other for whatever reason. We cut the other one up all at the same time and as people got thier pieces it separated a bit.
Now you try. People will think you are an absolute genius.
