Frosting , crumb coat, and fondant application

That's all it takes for basic butter cream , a touch of vanilla too if you like. I don' measure I just add sugar until , until it is the right consistency .


I strained this melted jam over a double boiler.

In my case covered by fondant.

Making a great cake takes many little steps that stretch over many hours , chilling can not be missed or rushed.

Powdered sugar prevents sticking.

This was very immediately gratifying.

You can also pipe frosting to hide edges.
Tomorrow : finishing touches , including piping and detail application.
