The World of Buttercream

The World of Buttercream

In previous posts, I have given you recipes for the best (in my opinion) chocolate, white and yellow cakes.  As I am making a birthday cake for Glambaby #1 (chocolate, with chocolate icing, long sprinkles and round sprinkles, and a Power Ranger on top, in case you were wondering), I realized that cake is not really cake without icing!  To be honest, I was never a fan of the icing as I always found it too sweet, but then I discovered buttercream and I was won over.  I am going to teach about the various types of buttercream (not all buttercreams are created equal) and share my favourite go-to icing, Swiss Buttercream.

Smash that Cake!

If you have a toddler in your life, then you have heard of Smash Cakes.  For those of you living adult only lives, smash cakes are all the rage for celebrating first birthdays.  The birthday boy or girl is given a small cake of their very own to, you guessed it, smash it!
