Today I’m sharing with you three of my favourite textured cake scrapers and the way to use them.
How to Use Textured Cake Scrapers
While I really like straight sides and a pointy edge on my muffins, I believe it’s so enjoyable to combine it up and add some texture or sample to my muffins, as properly. Stripes are most likely my favourite method to change up the look of a cake!
Let’s undergo how I take advantage of every of the textured cake scrapers from my Texture Scraper Set from Shop Cake by Courtney.
How to Use the Striped Scraper
Don’t let stripes intimidate you. I do know they appear superior, however I promise, even a newbie baker can grasp this look. The key’s endurance! Once you’ve created your stripe grooves, frozen the cake for 15 minutes after which piped further buttercream into the grooves (see steps beneath), it’s going to take a while for these stripes to look crisp and clear. Remember: it will get worse earlier than it will get higher. Also, belief the method.
When you begin scraping the contemporary buttercream away to reveal the 2 toned stripes, you might have to press firmly and also you’ll have to scrape a number of occasions. And once I say a number of, don’t be stunned if it takes you a pair dozen scrapes! Just hold going till you reveal slightly of every buttercream coloration the scraper. That’s when you recognize you’re virtually there!
Scalloped and Ribbon Scrapers
The scalloped and ribbon scrapers are a lot easier to use! You’ll need a good coat of buttercream across the cake and then you definately’ll seize one among these scrapers to create slightly texture to the perimeters. Make positive to maintain the textured scrapers similar to you’ll the straight scraper – with a light-weight contact and a 45 diploma angle.
I really like how the scalloped scraper creates a bubble-like texture. I left the sting uncooked and stuffed the highest with blueberries once I embellished my Lemon Blueberry Cake.
The ribbon scraper really seems to be like a cascading waterfall of ribbons down the facet of your cake. Isn’t it so elegant. I really like the way in which it seems to be with my Classic Carrot Cake.
