When the base coat has chilled, add 1 1/2 cups buttercream frosting to the top of the cakes and use the offset spatula (or butter knife) to spread it down the sides evenly, so the cake is completely coated. Use the long offset spatula to even out the buttercream in a smooth layer on the side and top.
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.
