The only time we really talk about the cake is during Decorating Basics Lessons 1 and 2. After that our main focus of the classes are the decorations on the outside of the cakes. I feel that sometimes we forget that the cake and icing are the backdrop to our finished cake.
No matter how well we do the decorations we need a good backdrop to start with.
The up coming series “From Batter to Cake” are *my* steps for working on a cake, starting from the batter and moving through the other stages of preparing our cakes for decorating. At least once a week I will be posting different tips and suggestions that will hopefully improve your ‘backdrop’ giving you a good beginning surface for your decorations.
