There must be a better way of covering the sides of a cake with sliced almonds than throwing them or pressing them with your hands!

try this...

first ice the sides of the cake only.
then spread the nuts/coconut or whatever sprinkles onto some wax or parchment paper.
then hold the cake in your hands (palms on top and bottom of cake) and then turn it vertically . roll the sides of the cake gently onto the sprinkles, a little at a time - there is really very little mess this way. remember to gently touch the sides of the cake to the sprinkles to avoid getting any icing on to the sprinkles.

good luck.
