  1. Palette Technique

Not much artistic talent? Then try the palette technique. Choose from over 50 pastes for fine pastry to add color and taste to buttercream-you determine the intensity. To decorate a cake similar to the one in the photo (20 cm diameter, 10 cm high), you will need approx. 150 g buttercream.

Using small icing spatulas, apply the prepared buttercream in the desired amounts to the smooth surface of the cake. This provides texture and will be a real eye-catcher.
