Tips for Frosting Cakes

Tips for Frosting Cakes

Enhance the flavor of your baked goods with icing and frostings. In addition, they are a barrier to moisture and extend freshness.

Cool your layers completely. Brush loose crumbs from the sides. Place one layer, top side down, on a cake plate. Spread frosting evenly over your first layer. Place the other cake layer topside up on the frosted layer, and frost both sides.

Creatively frost the top with the remaining frosting. Create swirls with a spoon or butter knife for an easy and interesting effect. If you want to be more creative, you can learn to make ribbons, flower and leaves, and other accents with a decorating bag using different removable tips. You can also purchase decorations from most supermarkets.

Add artistry by drizzling a complimentary sauce or puree onto a serving plate, then place a slice of cake on top. Serve it like they do in the world’s finest restaurants!
