Watch and learn how to frost a cake with Sandy Sheppard, Master Cake Decorator. Sandy has been decorating cakes for over 25 years.

Frosting a cake is as easy as eating by following these simple tips:
1. Trim the tops of cakes to create an even surface.
2. To keep your cake stand neat while frosting the cake, tuck strips of parchment paper underneath the cake after you’ve placed it on the stand and before you begin frosting.
3. Spread a thin layer of frosting on the cake with an offset spatula to seal in crumbs (called “crumb coating”). Chill for about 30 minutes before applying the final coat of frosting. This will help keep crumbs from working their way into the layer of frosting.
4. To keep a tall cake from sliding while you work, insert a bamboo skewer through the center.
