These techniques will work on any size cake you can use them to decorate the frosting on a sheet cake or any type of single layer cake. But I find the height helps show off design, so I suggest using a standard two-layer cake here.
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.
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.
