So, I haven’t tried this. But I saw it on www.cakecentral.com and thought hey. . . that’s an idea! I am more than a little concerned about the FLIP. But there is something oh so appealing about a perfectly smooth buttercream cake that makes me want to give it a go. Especially since I have now seen two separate tutorials in the last 2 days about how to go about it.
The first one that I saw involved VIVA paper towels and I just have a sinking suspicion that I would end up licking an awful lot of stuck buttercream off of a paper towel, and still have a crappy looking cake at the end of the day.
What does make me feel hopeful is that both methods involve a very hot spatula of some sort and I think I may be able to distill all the techniques down to that one simple element.
So, I’ll give it a go. You give it a go. And let’s meet back here to compare notes!
