HOW TO FROST BUTTERCREAM / CARA MENGHIAS KEK


It irritates me if I can't get a smooth frosting. I envy those who made it well...I always did it my way until I stumble into a video on making a smooth frosting. Ever since that I used the techniques and OMG it turned out well.  Learn this techniques you sure be happy with the result. The video from Youtube.com  makes your job easier - Happy Trying

All you need
*a round cake to be frosted
*cardboard cake round to fit your cake
*offset spatula (a butter knife will do)
*a large cutting board
*freezer space
*4 inch tape knife (find one at the hardware store)
*cake turntable or Lazy Susan

And the most important element is you got to be very patience



Let your cake cool. Most cakes will form a dome on the top. Level the top off with a serrated knife or sciccor

Pour a dallop  buttercream at the centre of the cake. Using your butter knife or spatula spread your buttercream frosting . You will want to hold your spatula at a 45-degree angle and move the cake stand in order to frost it perfectly. Most people make the mistake of moving around the cake, while the cake should really be the only thing to move. Now, for the really smooth part, use a “bench scraper” (if you don’t have one, this is a great tool) to smooth the sides of the cake to a glassy finish. You can always use your spatula to fix any small smudges or mistakes, but finish it off with the scraper. Following this step, you will want to refrigerate the cake until it the frost is rather firm.

It is okay for your frosting to be a little thick. It will be better than getting it too thin so you see crumbs. The corner where the sides meet the top will be crisp and clean. Using your spatula or butter knife remove any frosting on the wax paper that is excess and pick up your cake and slide the wax paper out from under it. Your cake is now smoothly frosted and ready for decorating.




Mula-mula menghias kek memang cukup menyakitkan hati, kerap kali kek tidak kemas dan tidak lincin..tetapi kini tidak lagi...walau pun bukan pakar tetapi teknik membuatnya jika diamati betul-betul boleh menghasilkan kek yang dihajati. Paling penting dalam menghias kek adalah :

1 - Kesabaran
2 - Peralatan kek
3 - Cara yang betul.

Saya telah meletakkan alat penting menghias kek. Selalunya untuk krim atau butter krim, krimnya dicurahkan ditengah-tengah kek, kemudian putarkan lapik pemutar kek., Tangan hendaklah 45 darjah..dan tangan jangan dierak...cuma putarkan lapik kek..krim akan leper dan menurun ke bawah. menggunakan putaran yang sama lincinkan keliling. untuk menambahkan kelincinan gunakan scrapper dibahagian tepi sambil memutar lapik pemutar. Insyallah kek anda akan menjadi cantik dan lincin.

Sila lihat video di atas..anda pasti akan mendapat gambaran yang lebih jelas. Lihat experiment saya di atas...saya sudah berjaya menepati apa yang saya inginkan. Anda pun boleh membuat yang lebih hebat dari ini. Selamat Mencuba.
