Hey all,

It's me again with yet another question. icon_smile.gif I'd like to know how you all get the jimmies, sprinkles etc on the side of your cake. I haven't found an easy way without making it look like they are smooshed on there.

As usual, thanks in advance. icon_smile.gif

the way I coat the side of any cake with something (nuts, crumbs, sprinkles, etc) is by holding the cake in one hand at a slight angle over a dish or tray of the (for present purposes) sprinkles. Gently press handfuls of the sprinkles onto the side of the cake letting the excess fall back onto the tray and just work your way around the cake like this. I don't know if you can do this once your buttercream has crusted unless you mist it with water or something, but I don't use a crusting buttercream so I can't say for sure.

You have to add this before the buttercream crusts.
