Icing on a cake

I hope it's not too late to post the Depavali Cake that was bake by my sister- of course under my supervision. This cake was brought to Seremban by AirAsia- Now Everyone ( Everything) Can fly.

Ready Cake

Cover all angle of your cake with icing. You can use a leveler (you can purchase it at any baking shop) or a poker card to make it smooth. Make sure there are no holes and all excess icing on the cake board is removed and cleaned before you start decorating with your favourite decoration tips. I will post tip number and with the design in my future post.
The result are revealed here. A well sandwiched cakes ready to be decorated. Bear in mind this cake is about four (4 )inches height. Look small but very heavy. For a beginner, set aside at least two (2) to three (3)hours to decorate your cake. Timing will start from the time you prepare your icing. Make sure all ingredient of baking cake are at room temperature unless require by the recipe to be chilled prior to use.
Since we have prepared a lot of icing, we decided to put three level of icing. So, we still have to cut in between the two cakes. Look at the picture above and you will know what I mean. Put a generous amount of icing on top of the cake and level it up.

This is a nice shape cake with no lump and no bump. This smooth surface will make icing much easier and there will be no cutting or trimming before icing is done. If you have a small oven and want to cut cost ( electricity and timing of baking) you can bake the cake in one pan. But since my open is the largest in its category ( TEKA of Germany) and to avoid me messing up the cake by cutting in between, I have used 2 pans of 8 inches depth to bake the cakes. So, the results, perfectly leveled cake.
