How do you get the top and side of your cake to look so square..mine I have to kinda roll the side over and round the top to look like fondant, cuz I can't get them to look crisp and sharp...

Please share your secrets...

Thanks,

This article on frosting square cakes should give you a good idea... http://www.cakecentral.com/article51-How-To-Frost-a-Square-Cake.html

It's a 2 handed, 2 tooled motion to create nice crisp corners.

The butter cream DVD by sugarshack shows exactly how to do it. She uses a different technique, one that I had never seen before. The coners/edges of her cakes are PERFECT! I would try to explain how to do it but it's something you really have to see to understand. I am so glad I found her dvd s they have helped me a great deal.

here's a link
