Tips For Icing Cakes Like A Pro

September 4th, 2011 by

Baking and icing cakes can be a fun activity for an entire family. It’s a great way to build and/or maintain close relationships while satisfying your sweet tooth cravings. Learning exactly how to be a pro at icing cakes can be a bit challenging, however, there are a few tools and tips that might, with practice, help you gain some experience.
Frosting Cake Tips
First, it’s advised to bake a cake and slice the layers (assuming you are baking a layered cake). Next, you want to use the right amount of icing. Overdoing or under doing the frosting will make the cake look unsatisfying and not as yummy as expected. The frosting that you choose should be at room temperature, unless it’s cool whip of course. Next, begin with the filling and spread it over the first layer of the cake. Then, top it with the next layer. Continue doing this until all the layers are stacked. After doing this, it’s important to surround the cake with a thin layer of frosting. This is known as a crumb coat. You want to do this to make it easier to apply the last coating on the cake. After refrigerating the cake, you can apply the second coating on top of the hard crumb coat. Lastly, you can make designs and swirls on the cake for fancy decorations and when you are finished you can enjoy your wonderful creation!
