  • Notes:

    • Cake Mold Details: Use a pastry brush to help spread the non-stick spray into the corners of the pan. This will sharpen the detailed outlines of the cake.
    • Cooling Cake: Allow the cake to cool in the pan on a cooling rack about 10-15 minutes before removing to prevent cracking or breaking. Let the cake cook for about 2 hours before decorating.
    • Buttercream Consistencies: Stiff: Best for dimensional decorations that need to retain their shape when piped. This consistency is generally used for piping upright petals for flowers. Medium: Medium consistency is used for borders such as stars, dots, and shells, as well as other decorations that will remain relatively flat. Thin: If you are making a buttercream intended for writing, use light corn syrup as your liquid. Writing will flow easily and won’t break.
