Decorating your cake is the best part of the process in my opinion! It’s a super fun way to give the cake your own unique twist. If you’re new to cake making, start with easier techniques like creating simple designs on a frosted cake or adding some decorative toppings. But experienced cake bakers can play around a bit more!
First, you need to select a frosting for your cake. Make sure it’s thick enough to stick to the top and sides. If your frosting looks a bit runny, just add some powdered sugar until it thickens up. Once that’s done, you can use an icing smoother to ensure the sides are frosted evenly. Keep going until the sides are coated and then run your smoother around the cake to even out the surface.
