I LOVE this sleepover cake–it was one of my most requested cakes for girls–I love the buttercream bedspread and cute fondant faces! It’s so much fun to personalize the girls on the cake to match the hair color and length of the birthday girl and her friends!
In the tutorial, we transform a simple 9×13 sheet cake into a bed, and frost it with a crusting buttercream. Any of the crusting buttercream recipes would work well for this cake (including our Fluffy Vanilla Buttercream and Classic Vanilla recipe). Non crusting buttercreams are fine too, but they cannot be smoothed with a Viva paper towel and so a different smoothing method would need to be used. Enjoy the video!
*update: 11/2016: Just wanted to pop in to say that this is one of our first videos on our site. Six years ago, I used the paint roller method a lot for smoothing. I haven’t used that method in years as I now use the Viva paper towel method for smoothing. Cake decorating is ever-changing ;0)
