The first step of decorating a cake is covering it with a thin, even layer of frosting called the crumb coat. This thin coat helps smooth the frosting surface and trap stray crumbs before you add the rest of the frosting.
FWhen the base coat has chilled, fit a piping bag with 1-inch circle tip and fill with 1 1/2 cups frosting. Pipe a vertical row of circles on the cake, then use the back of a spoon to gently smooth the circles horizontally in a counter-clockwise direction, forming a petal shape. Pipe another vertical row of circles next to the petals, use the spoon to smooth them down, and repeat to cover the entire cake.
While the frosting is still soft, place the back of the spoon against the cake and swipe back and forth to create peaks and swooshes in the frosting all over the cake. Return cake to the refrigerator for 30 minutes to firm up the frosting before serving.
