Putting a Cake on a Cake Board
Putting a cake on a cake board is an important step in the cake decorating process. A cake board provides stability and support for your cake, making it easier to transport and display. Here are the steps for putting a cake on a cake board:
Step 1: Prepare the Cake Board
Before you can put your cake on the board, you need to prepare it. Start by covering the board with wax paper or parchment paper. This will help keep the board clean and prevent any crumbs from getting onto your cake. Once the board is covered, use a dab of buttercream frosting to secure the cake in place.
Step 2: Place the Cake on the Board
Once the board is prepared, carefully place your cake onto it. Make sure that it is centered and level before proceeding. If necessary, use a spatula to adjust the position of the cake.
Step 3: Secure the Cake
Once the cake is in place, use more buttercream frosting to secure it to the board. Spread a thin layer of frosting around the edges of the cake and press down gently to make sure that it is firmly attached.
Step 4: Decorate as Desired
Once your cake is securely attached to the board, you can decorate it as desired. You can add additional layers of frosting, sprinkles, or other decorations to make your cake look even more impressive.
