How do you clean up messes when icing the sides of a cake? There's always little globs of icing on the cakeboard, no matter how hard I try to scrape it up with a spatula, and even if no one else notices, I notice...it sticks out like a sore thumb! I usually use an angled spatula but sometimes I use a decorating bag with an icer tip. Thanks!
AI just use a paper towel. It can be avoided though; Ice the cake on a separate board the same size of the cake and then transfer to the larger cake board. Hth
Thanks...I'll have to try that about using the different sized cake boards...and find my paper towels ;)
ASlide wax paper strips under the edges and pull them out after icing.
Icing the cake on a board the same size as the cake is the best way to go. It allows for moving the cake into the fridge, if necessary, and the board edge can be the guide for making the sides smooth & vertical. It also adds extra stabilization to the cake. It's a small extra step that saves cleaning up a mess later.
AI pull them out right after.
