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.
When the base coat has chilled, add 1 1/2 cups buttercream frosting to the top of the cake and use the offset spatula (or butter knife) to spread it down the side evenly, so the cake is completely coated. Use the long offset spatula to even out the buttercream in a smooth layer on sides and top.
Secure your cake board to the cake stand by placing a wet paper towel, folded in half, under it. Tint the buttercream to your preferred color. If the cake layers have baked up a bit domed (most of them do), use the serrated knife to shave off the domed part, creating a completely flat surface. Place a small dollop of frosting on the cake board to anchor the cake, then place a cake on top, trimmed-side down.
