Decorator's Triangle

Decorators Triangle


On Sunday my family attended a memorial for Bill, a lovely man that always had the biggest smile.  I brought a last minute cake with left over icing, mix, and some apple filling that I had in the pantry.  As I was icing it, I figured the cake shouldn't look too fancy, but it should still look nice.  In the back of my cupboard I had the Wilton Decorating Triangle.  I had never used an icing comb before, but gave it a shot and was pleasantly surprised.

This was an all-butter American buttercream.  With the comb gently against the side of the cake, I gave the turn table a spin and that was that!  For the top I gently placed it so the edge of the comb was in the center and spun again.  You can't press too hard or it will scrape away your icing and you'll see cake underneath.

I was pleased at how thin and sharp the plastic was, making the icing shapes smooth and consistent.  I'll have to try out the other sides with future last-minute cakes!
