How in the world do you make rows of dots on a round cake even? I'm making a wedding cake for a friend and my practice cake had crooked dots. Help!

You could take a pc. of paper and make it an even height, then place gently around the cake and pipe where or slightly above the pc. of paper. Hopefully, this makes sense. I'm not sure what kind of pattern you are trying to achieve, that would help to probably give better advice.

If you need several rows, you could start out at the top with a wide paper, then cut it down each time, till you get to the bottom.

I just use a ruler and a toothpick to mark where I'll pipe the dot.

And the Wilton divider mat thing.

I'm trying to pipe six rows of dots around the base of a cake. Thanks for the advice, I'll give it a try and get back to you.

The divider mat will show you exactly where to place the rows for even spacing.
