This cake shows the incredible smoothness that can be achieved with a crusting buttercream. There is a bit of technique involved in getting that ultra-smooth finish, and after I finally got it down, it was almost a shame to cover it up with little white fondant daisies.
But what an elegant and simple design--I'm sure I'm not the first one to do something like this, but I know that I hope to do many more in this style. I just love it.
Lorie Anderson has more than 20 years experience decorating and baking fanciful desserts. Learning decorating from her mother, at age 7 she did her first party cake (with purple star flowers and a shell border) for her standard poodle’s birthday bash. Through the years the guests became more sophisticated and the cakes more decadent.
Lorie developed her craft through classes and workshops and has worked in the restaurant and private kitchen as a creative outlet counter to a career in marketing and public relations. After the birth of their two children and raising her boys to always believe in following their dreams, she decided to do the same and open a cake design studio.
