CakeSpy for Craftsy: Crusting Buttercream

When you think of the word “crust”, you probably think more of pie than cake. But crust can also be an important term to assign to cakes–particularly pertaining to buttercream. A crusting buttercream is one that will set up firmly enough so that it can be touched lightly without making a mark. Although still relatively delicate, this crust can be a very helpful asset to decorators, making a nicely primed surface for all sorts of cake decoration, from decorative piping to fondant or gum paste adornment.
