Here is a quick tutorial by Anino Ogunjobi on how to use a stencil with cream-cheese icing paste, to decorate a cake for mother’s day or any occasion according to your choosing.
Do you remember the plaidcraft’s stencil that I featured in a previous post(here)? Anino promised that she will be crafting with them. She decorated this cake using one of those stencils.
- Soft cheese
- Plaidcraft’s stencil- Peony
- Palette knife
- Fondant covered cake
- Icing sugar (powder)
- Food colouring: orange
STEP 1: place stencil on the fondant covered cake; the stencil that I used is large, so I used a portion of the design.
STEP 2: Cream the soft cheese and the sieved icing sugar together, this makes a soft paste. Add the food colouring. Paste should not be running or too stiff. Spread the cream-cheese icing on the stencil and the cake using the palette knife.
STEP 3: Remove the stencil, when you have finished covering and smoothing the icing paste on the cake and stencil design. Tie a ribbon to the base of the cake.
