Squires Kitchen has teamed up with award-winning cake designer Helen Mansey of Bellissimo Cakes to bring you innovative Flexi Smoothers that make covering cakes to a professional standard even easier. Made from FDA-approved plastic and easy to use, Bellissimo Flexi Smoothers are designed to help you achieve sharp, clean edges on sugarpasted cakes of any size. With one rounded and one straight-edged smoother, Bellissimo Flexi Smoothers allow you to create perfectly crisp edges for a clean, polished and professional finish.

The small smoothers have a tighter curve which makes them perfect for use on small, round cakes that are 8cm–13cm (3”–5”) in size. They can also be used with square cakes of any size.

Before using the Bellissimo Flexi Smoothers on sugarpaste it is important to create a clean, crisp edge on the cake coating underneath (e.g. marzipan or ganache). Please see further details below for pre-coating methods.

Use the Bellissimo Flexi Smoothers on freshly-covered cakes while the sugarpaste is still soft. For a round cake, hold the smoother with the curved edge on the top of the cake and hold the straight smoother against the side of the cake. Apply light pressure and gently run the two smoothers together around the top edge of the cake. You will notice a crisp edge starting to appear. Repeat as necessary until you are happy with the results. For a square cake, use the straight edges of each smoother to achieve a sharp edge.

Pre-coating methods:

Ganache method

  1. Make a ganache using one part whipping cream and two parts dark chocolate. Allow to cool to room temperature.
  2. Layer and fill the cake with the ganache then secure the cake onto a thin cake board.
  3. Coat the top of the cake with ganache then coat the sides, ensuring you achieve straight sides and a crisp top edge. Allow to harden overnight.
  4. Brush the ganache very lightly with cooled, boiled water and apply a 4mm layer of sugarpaste to the cake. Use regular smoothers to smooth the sugarpaste. Use the Bellissimo Flexi Smoothers straight away following the instructions above.

Marzipan method

  1. Cover a cake as you would in preparation for royal icing to create a sharp top edge (i.e. top and sides separately) and leave to dry for 24 hours.
  2. Brush with clear spirit and apply a 4mm layer of sugarpaste to the cake. Use regular smoothers to smooth the icing then follow the instructions for using the Bellissimo Flexi Smoothers above.

Straight-edged smoother: 106mm x 78mm
Rounded smoother: 106mm x 78mm

Made from FDA-approved food contact material. Wash before use in warm, soapy water. Please note these smoothers are not dishwasher safe.
