Although I do specialize in fondant cakes, there’s something about a buttercream covered dessert that feels soft and romantic.
When done well, a buttercream has a light and smooth texture to it. Creamy but not overly sweet, allowing the flavours of the cake below it to punch through and mix in your mouth in a perfect balance.
Whether texturized with a palette knife, patterned with a cake comb or scraped to reveal the cake underneath, the decorating opportunities are endless with this finish.
