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.
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.
The above cake is a sweet yet unique take on a quick cake due to its tall rectangular shape paired with pastel quilled and ruffled fondant flower decorations. By preparing your flower accents before baking, stacking and covering your cake you will find that this design is pretty quick and straightforward. Our top tip is to create a few more flowers than you think you will need in case you fancy adding to your design later!
