Difficulty Easy

Broken Video?

Join Claire in this week's tutorial on how to create a sophisticated layered stencilled effect buttercream cake covered in a rich vibrant fuchsia pink. Over the years stencils have become quite popular and in this tutorial, we focus on using Swiss Meringue buttercream due to its light silky-smooth consistency making it easy to glide over a stencil and creating perfect results. In this lesson you will be guided on how to cover a cake with coloured buttercream evenly and making sure your cake is perfectly straight, how to use a designer stencil and create a geometric textured design and lastly how to add some piping details and a floral decoration. For more great ideas on how to use stencils and make Swiss meringue buttercream then check out our tutorials below.
