Liz Larson demonstrates how to decorate a 1/2 sheet cake with Sunflowers, and a Stenciling technique with a airbrush.
Some of the decorating tools I use
3 eggs whites room temperature
1 pound powdered sugar (confectioners)
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
Combine ingredients, beat at high speed 7-10 minutes.
Dries quickly-keep covered.
2 CUP SHORTENING (SWEETEX)
1 CUP MILK (CANNED MILK IS GOOD)
2 TSP VANILLA
1 TSP. ALMOND EXTRACT
½ TSP.BUTTER FLAVORING
3 LB. POWDERED SUGAR
2 tsp. salt
Mix together and beat 10 minutes until light and fluffy it
will keep in refrigerator for about 2 wks. Is enough
to ice and decorate an 8 or 9 inch double layer cake.
You can cut the recipe in half if you don't need that much. In this video I am using Pastry Pride Whip Topping. It can be found at
most restaurant supply stores and Cake decorating supply stores. Riches Buttercream is also a good option.
