Q: Any Recommendations on How to Get A Smooth/Flat Top of The Cake When Frosting? I’ve Been Getting Smooth Sides of My Cakes But I’ve Been Struggling With The Top of My Cakes. D. Mitchell
- A metal bench scraper, chilled all butter buttercream, and patience. A. Wilson
- I saw a video where a woman uses playing cards because she feels she has better control. J. Sullivan
- Once you smooth the sides of the cake you will get a build up of icing along the edge of the top of the cake. Chill the cake in the fridge for 10 minutes and then take a sharp knife and slowly cut the excess off so you don’t need to smooth it on to the top of the cake! E. Compton
- Dip your bench scraper in super hot water then smooth. S.K. Joseph
- Upside down method.
