hi. im making a shamrock shaped cake for my birthday on tuesday and i was wondering if i have to shave off the raised center for the top and bottom to make it more flat.if so, how do i do that? because wut i plan on doing is making it a double layered cake with a marshmallow cream filling. and then icing it with green letters.
thanks in advance.
Hi Katie, it's always best to level the domed top of your cake. I use a sharp, long bladed knife (it's about 10 inches long) and carefully trim the top away until level. You can make it easier by putting boards into the tin you baked the cake in, putting the cake back in so it's raised above the rim, and then it's really easy to use the top of the cake tin as a guide. I always turn my cake upside down and use the flat bottom as my top.
Hope that helps - Good Luck with the Shamrock cake and Happy Birthday!
