Forum: Cakes & Cake Decorating


Hello my fellow cakers,

I have been trying to put a stencil on buttercream, and for the life of me with no success.
I do use a crusting buttercream.

If any of you would have any suggestions that would be greatly apprieciated? = )

Did you get it to work yet? I haven’t done a stencil yet, but I saw that there were a couple videos on youtube that could be helpful, but you probably already thought of that.

I Like to let my cake set up and crust in the fridge overnight, so that it is quite hard as I am stenciling I try to put it back in the fridge after ever section and get cold and hard again…This way I don’t mar the surface! It is Time consuming but it works! Good Luck! =)
