Rustic Cake

Hey guys!

To close this week with a golden key, let me show you my buttercream rustic cake.

This imprint technique is pretty simple, you just use a fork to mess your perfectly smooth buttercream (yes… this can be harsh… LOL). You can use this technique anytime you want to achieve a wood-like texture, for example.

Although is not a cake made for a hot/humid weather (the buttercream can overreact, decide to leave the building and just melt when under heat) on a tempered climate it can easily be outside of your fridge for up to 3 days (depending on your choice of filling as well, of course).


About:

  • 6 inches x 4,5 inches cake
  • Buttercream finish
  • Piped roses (Tip 103)
  • Piped leaves (Tip 352)

Project 06 – Simple Leaves

Project 6 - Leaves

 

The good thing about these simple leaves is that they are really simple to make, and quite a nice experience. 🙂

First you cut the shape of the leave you desire. (You can use a cookie cutter for that, I don’t see why not.).

Then with your vein tool (the thinner side), mark the center and cover all the sides with veins.

In order to give them some shape, rip some tissue paper and lay them on top of it until they are completly dry.
