Rustic Frosting | When I use this technique I start out with a smooth frosted base. this is more than a crumb coat, you need to really even out your cake. Once it is frosted and chilled I take out the layers one at a time starting with the base. That way they remain chilled and firm as I spackle on more frosting! I just pipe simple dots 3 at a time up the cake- then use my little spatula to spread them, they will set up quickly. C shaped swirls in two different directions.
A vintage cheese grater makes a nice utensil holder especially wooden utensils.>>> I've always liked the way old graters look, but I won't use rusty, so I like this idea. And you can always find them at second hand stores.
