I am making 2 kitchen cakes to accompany the main wedding cake. When you provide additional cakes do you smooth the frosting on them? I am not decorating them at all. Just icing.

I would ask the bride and charge according to her choice

I think it's a matter of preference. I personally think that it looks more presentable when it is smooth.

I smooth mine. They are going on a persons plate and they need to look presentable.

I do smooth them, but not to the same precision as the displayed cake. Just no major waves or ripples is good enough for me.

I agree, you still want each slice to look neat when they plate it up, but there is no need for precision smooth icing icon_smile.gif
