Perfect Frosting

Tired of your icing looking absolutely horrible on your cake, no matter what you try? Does the final product look rough, bumpy, and like a mountain range gone bad?

This is the first issue with those learning cake decorating. After you let your cake completely and totally cool, put it on a flat surface and get your frosting ready.

Dip your spatula in hot water before you start frosting to help keep it smooth, and put all of the frosting you're going to use on the cake before you start icing.

Long, even strokes make icing a cake easier, and don't over-do it. Several long, even strokes, and you're done.
