Hi everyone can someone help me with this, I am so frustrated.
I have seen the method here on cake central on how to perfectly ice a round cake, but can someone help me with a square cake or a cake with sides. I cannot get the sides square enough or evenly smoothed.
I'm convinced there is no perfect way to do a square cake! It is very hard for me. tcturtleshell said to build up extra forsing on the corners an dthis has helped. I know this questions comes up a lot and I know others can answer it better than me. Hopefully they can help us both!
Why can't you use the round cake method? Seems to me like it might work.
I think it was m0use or Lisa (?) who sent in a post on this, with a detailed diagram on how to do it. Very helpful once I got it through my brain!
Will have to search now for it as I saved it someplace...if only I could remember where! :
I agree...adding extra icing in the corners seems to help me. I wait at least an hour for it to set, then I get parchment paper and smooth is out evenly.
Here is are some step-by-step photos and instructions on how to get those perfectly straight edges and sharp corners
Jackie, did you remove this post? I'd sure like to see what that link used to show! Thanks.
