Cake Frosting Tip

As you can see, I’m not all that great at icing a cake, but I have learned on trick. To keep the cake plate (or in this case plastic) clean while frosting, place three sheets of wax paper under the cake. The paper should be in narrow rectangles and arranged to form a triangle that covers the surface area. When you are done frosting the cake, carefully pull the wax paper out, and any stray frosting will be removed with it. You need to pull each piece a little at a time to keep the cake from shifting one direction on the plate.

  1. That’s great! I hate having messy frosting all over the plate.

  2. Great idea! I hope I can remember this the next time I am frosting a cake.
