This may be a dumb question, but I want to make the sides of my cake a different color from the top. there will be a border to hide the edges somewhat, but I was wondering if there is a certain technique or even just which part to frost first. It doesn't *seem* so hard, but that's how I always go into things and then I make a big mess. So I thought I'd check first. Thanks!

Well, you just have to be fairly careful. I do the sides first and "cut" the icing at the edge, then spread on the top icing and add the border.

When I stacked a cake with different colors I was scared also The top of the cake was the color of the cake on top check out my Tinkerbell, The sides first worked good. The edge decorating hid any flaws
