Frosting a cake is very difficult.
It’s not me, who sucks in the kitchen, who’s going to tell you otherwise.

It takes technique, it’s true.
Fortunately, there is a parry, a great trick very simple.
This trick that all pastry chefs use is the « turntable« .
Because the cake that we rotate, it really facilitates handling… Look at the result in image:
How to do
1. Place your cake on the turntable.
2. With a spatula, scoop out the icing.
3. With one hand, approach the spatula so that the frosting is in contact with the cake. Be careful not to press too hard.

5. Repeat until your cake is completely covered.
There you go, you have successfully frosted your cake 🙂
