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 rounded side of a teaspoon at a slight angle on the bottom edge of cake. Press gently and drag it along the base of the cake, creating a horizontal line in the frosting (the rotating cake stand is especially useful for this). Once you have created a complete ring pattern across the bottom of the cake, shift the spoon up by 1 inch and repeat to form another ring pattern above the first one. Repeat the process until you have reached the top of cake.
Place a second cake, also trimmed-side down, on top of the first cake layer. Top the second cake layer with 2 cups buttercream, and use the small offset spatula to spread the frosting across and down the sides of the cake, covering it completely. Use a long offset spatula (or butter knife) to smooth off the top of the cake.
