The Little Delights in Life: How To Frost a Cake (using a paper towel)
Professional Look, Birthday, Frost Cake, Cakes, Perfectly Smooth, Viva Paper, Papertowel, Cake Decorating, Paper Towels
When the pros frost a cake, they don't use a paper towel, but if you're not a pro and wish you could get the same look, a paper towel and a steady hand is all you really need. You'll still have to frost the cake like normal, but for that perfectly smooth, professional look at the end, reach for a paper towel.
Use a Viva paper towel as a tool to smooth frosting and fake a Fondant Look on a buttercream frosted cake! (Technique starts at 7:17)
Frosting a cake to look smooth like fondant using a Viva paper towel. Love this idea since I hate the taste and texture of fondant.
This video is really helpful and shows you step by step what your cake should look like, the way to put a crumb coat on, the final layer of frosting, and then how to smooth it out with a Viva paper towel. This can get your cake so smooth that it looks like fondant!
Frost a Cake With a Viva Paper Towel for A Smooth, Professional Look. Go to 7mins 15 secs to watch this part only. Basically, place Viva paper towel on icing and with long delicate strokes with the length of your hand, apply very gentle passes to smooth out the frosting. Kinda like petting a dog or cat's back from head to tail. If your frosting is soft, refrigerate for a while so it's easier to smooth out.
Paper Towel for A Smooth, Professional Look--Frost the cake like normal. For perfectly smooth look at the end use a paper towel. Video takes you through the whole process; the paper towel action kicks off in the last few minutes (around 7:15.) Just use the paper towel to press the frosting down nice and flat, and with quick smoothing motions, slide your finger across the top and sides of the cake. Use a paper towel with no pattern or design printed on it (Viva is one). Fondant-like look.
FROST A CAKE WITH A PAPER TOWEL: flatten cake slightly with the smooth side of a VIVA paper towel. Buttercream recipe: Beat 1c of salted butter (or unsalted, but add a bit of salt by hand) for 30 to 60 seconds. Add 1c of powdered sugar, beat. Then add another and beat again. Now add 1-2 tbs. of heavy whipping cream (or milk), 1 tsp. vanilla (preferably clear), dye and 1 more cup of powdered sugar. Beat again and add one last cup of powdered sugar (4 total). Beat and add more cream if too thick.

What an amazing idea! Put cookie dough on outside of muffin pan and make a cookie bowl for icecream when done. Yummy!
Seriously awesome idea!! Bake cookie dough on the backside of a muffin pan to make cookie bowls! Fill them with yummy ice cream.
Bake cookie dough on the bottom of the muffin pans to make cookie bowls for ice cream or pudding - genius!
Put cookie dough on the outside of a muffin pan & bake to make cookie bowls to put ice cream in.. Fun idea..
Isn't this a cool idea. When baking cookies, instead of baking on a flat cooking sheet, use a muffin pan. Place the cooking dough on the outside of the muffin cups. Then you'll have cookie bowls for putting ice cream in.
Cookie Bowls - favorite cookie dough molded on underside of muffin pan, bake, then fill with ice cream!
cookie bowls! bake cookies on the bottom of the pan - then put ice cream in them. devour - How cool is that?! You could also attach a licorice whip as a handle and drop jelly beans inside to make a really cool totally edible Easter basket! It could also hold candy hearts on Valentine's day. (Use heart-shaped muffin pans for really cute baskets on this!) What a fantastic idea!!!
Great idea. Cookie dough on outside of muffin pan. Bake. Put ice cream inside when done cooling.
