The next few days I am going to post easy and quick ways to decorate a cake or cupcakes. I will also include some quick fondant/gumpaste decorations! This is my first post in that series, I hope you enjoy it!
This is an 8inch double layer lemon cake with a strawberry cream cheese filling. I will post the recipe soon.
Once your cake is baked and completely cooled, go ahead and level it, fill it and put a nice crumb coat on it. *TIP** to keep my cake board from sliding around as I ice a cake, I take a small square of non slip shelf liner and slip it under the cake board*
Starting at the bottom of your cake and working your way around, create a swirling motion with the piping bag. Start in the center and swirl your way out. You may want to practice on a plate a few times until you get the hang of it.
