Beautiful cake!

I have been wanting a 'butter curler' tool for awhile....to take to potlucks with monks who fill their big bowls, from which they eat with small spoons. I've seen them struggle to put butter onto their food, and was thinking that butter curls would make their eat easier.....

but I can't find a butter curler locally; can order one from Amazon.com. Perhaps a cheese cutter would work on butter?

I sometimes use a cheese plane when my butter is cold & hard. It doesn't curl very much for me.

I would think one could curl butter by scraping with a teaspoon.

Thanks! :). I will post the recipe ...

I haven't tried it on butter, but if it's anything like the chocolate the temperature will matter a lot. Cold and hard just crumbles, too warm and soft just mooshes. I'll guess that the transition between too hard and too soft happens a lot faster with butter than chocolate.

Did you try a vegetable peeler ? Someone here suggested that for the chocolate. It makes thinner curls and I found it more difficult to get the right angle on the chocolate but maybe it would work better with butter.

Nope, haven't tried. Maybe it's temperature dependant. I often get curls with a knife, if the butter is cold and hard. Of course, that's when I'm not trying for curls ;)
