Even the most gourmet cakes can become disasters if the frosting looks like a child splattered it on. So become a pro with tips from Clarice Lam of The Baking Bean. Lam demonstrates how to properly frost a cake — even if you're an amateur.
Some easy tips: Invest in a cake stand that swirls and a large offset, and try whipping up some store-bought frosting to make it lighter and easier to spread. It also helps to freeze the cake for a few minutes after one layer of frosting, and then add more — it hardens the frosting, making it easier to shape. And last but not least: "Don't go too far."
