Tutoral - Covering a cake by ginas-cakes Tutoral - Covering a cake by ginas-cakes
TIPS

After baking the sponge, leave to cool completely.
The sponge is best left a day to rest before decorating.

Have a cup of boiling water at hand to dip you pallet knife in for
smoothing butter-icing over the sponge.





This tutoral has brief descriptions of each stage. I have tried to explain the best I can to make each process clear. If there is anything you are uncertain of, please ask, or pose a question here for someone else who may answer. I have also added a couple of tips which I forgot to add on the tutoral. If you also have any...let me know :)

This is a simple, clear technique which you've explained very well. I'll have to give it a try sometime.

I have a question: (sorry if I don't stop to read all the comments)
You say to wait a day to dry it. Do I have to leave it outside? or in the fridge? and the day after the cake inside is still nice and yummy? I'm asking because I really want to try this technique!

That's ok......

You leave the cake to dry in an area that won't be effected by condensation/heat etc. A nice
dry cupboard will do.
The cake inside will last 1 week plus after covering.
I take 4 days usually to make a 3D cake from beginning to end including baking due to waiting for each stage to dry propperly.

I hope that helps...:)
