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.
When I was told to write an article about sofa cakes I had this immediate idea of what was required. I was wrong however, as there is no such thing as a sofa cake a cake specifically created to be eaten on a sofa. However there are a tremendous variety of sofa cakes out there, cakes which are a deliciously edible representation of a sofa. Thats right; you can buy a sofa cake, or even better, commission your local cake decorator to create one for you.
