CAKE101: Chill Your Cakes Beforehand if Blow Torching
Blow torching the sugared toppings of some cupcake flavours creates a delicious crunchy caramelised texture, but the buttercream underneath can be easily melted away by the heat. Our tip is to utilise your fridge or freezer to chill down the frosting.
“Before caramelising and blow torching the tops or toppings of cupcakes leave your cakes to sit in the fridge until chilled and firm. You don’t want your buttercream to melt so begin with cold frosting.”
