Prepping cake for decorating How to Prepare a Cake for Decorating

These tricks make it easy to decorate your cake evenly-and without the mess.

1. Use a serrated bread knife to level the cake layers. With the cake flat on the counter, carefully shave off the dome of the cake.

2. Gently brush off any crumbs, then freeze the cake for at least 15 minutes. If freezing for over 1 hour, wrap in plastic wrap and foil.

3. Fill and stack layers, then use a thin coating of frosting to lightly cover the cake. This "crumb coat" keeps loose crumbs from ending up in the pretty outer layer of frosting. Refrigerate 10 minutes.
