Stripy Cakes are SO HOT RIGHT NOW! But do you know what else is hot? CHRISTMAS Y'ALL! So I've combined the two in the best way I know how and I'm giving you an in-depth tutorial on how to master the stripy cake as well as a cool idea for a cake for the Holidays! Merry Christmas everyone!
You will need...
4-6 layers of your favourite sponge, filled, crumb coated and chillled
Buttercream (here's my recipe. Use 2-3 times... )
A special comb scraper like the one in the video (it probably has a name, but I have no clue what it is! LOL)
Red food colour paste
Lots of kitchen towel
Regular straight cake scraper
Things to decorate the top (I used melted white chocolate, gold lustre dust + vodka, various meringues, candy canes, festive chocolates, but you can use whatever you like!)
