With Just A Few Moves, She Turns This Shapeless Blob Of Fondant Into A Stunningly Lifelike Cake
While you likely have to be a professional to make a cake this impressive, with a couple tips, almost anyone can produce a nice layer cake. First, mix your batter, and pour it into a pan lined with parchment paper on the bottom, to ensure crumble-free release after baking. Let your cakes cool in the fridge, and level them by carving off the domed top, if necessary. Next, use a pastry bag to pipe a ring around the edge of the cake and refrigerate to set before filling, to keep it from oozing out the sides. Once the layers are assembled, cover the entire cake with a thin coat of icing and refrigerate about 30 minutes to keep crumbs from cluttering your visible frosting layer. Finally, slather on the rest of the icing and enjoy.
