In this video you will see how to apply butter cream frosting to a large circular cake for a wedding or for any occasion that calls for a fantastic cake. You will need a lot of frosting and an adequately sized smoothing tool. It is very helpful to have a platter that turns to get smooth, uniformed edges to your cake. Dipping your tool in a glass of warm water will allow for a more refined smoothing ability. You will use dowel rods placed through the cake to support the following layers. Frost smaller cakes in the same manner as the base layer and when stacked you should have a beautiful teared cake. This might take a bit of practice and time but the effect will be well worth the effort.
