Spring baking is in full swing! This guide will help you finish off a delicious cake — like our Orange Chiffon Layer Cake above — with a beautiful coat of even frosting worthy of a bakery display case. Once you’ve mixed, baked and assembled your layer cake, follow the steps below for foolproof frosting and glazing.
|The crumb coating should be a thin, even layer that covers the entire surface of the cake. Refrigerate the cake until firm, 15 to 30 minutes.|
|Immediately tilt the rack back and forth until the glaze covers the top and falls evenly over the sides.|
