Baker’s Tips: Cakes
To make a perfectly flat cake top, either invert the top layer so the flat side faces up or shave off the rounded portion with a serrated knife before assembling the cake.
To make the finished cake easy to move, set it on a cardboard round of the same size before frosting.
To evenly frost the cake, set the layers on a rotating cake stand or lazy Susan.
To garnish the cake, decorate with bittersweet chocolate shavings or cinnamon red hot candies all over the frosted top and sides.
