Cake Decorating - Cut-Up Cake Tips

Before You Decorate

If Possible, bake the cake the day before you plant to cut and decorate it.  A freshly baked cake can be difficult to work with.  If you have to make the cake the same day as you are going to decorate it, place the cooled cake in the freezer for 30 to 45 minutes so it won't be too tender to work with.  Freezing the cake before cutting allows you to get the cleanest edges and least amount of crumbs.

Cut the cakes using a long serrated knife in a sawing motion.

Slice the rounded top off of your cake so that it is flat.  If you cake is relatively flat, invert the cake and frost the flatter base of the cake.

Brush off all loose crumbs with a soft pastry brush or gently with your hand before you begin to frost.
