Recipe Tips

How to Frost a CakeIf the cake is very soft and crumbly, apply a “crumb coating” to prevent cake crumbs from spreading into the frosting. Spread a thin layer of frosting over the entire cake and let stand 5 to 10 min. to dry. Spread remaining frosting over cake.

Cooking Know-HowMake sure cakes are completely cooled before frosting. A warm cake can cause the frosting to soften or melt.
