Can someone explain to me how this smoothing process is carried out.??
All beer is good, but, unfortunately some are better than others.

Take a cake frosting spreader and run it gently on the surfaces until the outer surfaces are free from cracks and indentations. It's very similar to frosting a cake. Some places even use fresh curd to help fill in larger gaps.
Taking an extended leave (until 2015) from the forums to build out my farm and dairy. Please e-mail or PM if you need anything.

Sailor give a pretty good description in the other thread, "Pressing a Stilton".
