How to cover a cake in sugarpaste
presented by Imaginative Icing

Cover your cake! - Step 2

Smooth the icing to get rid of any rolling pin marks.

Brush a marzipanned cake with a little sherry, or cold boiled water. If covering a sponge cake spread it with a thin layer of apricot jam or butter cream.

Slide both hands, palms up, under the rolled out sugarpaste, so you can lift it in one piece without it stretching.

Lay loosely over the cake, do not press against the sides.

Smooth the top using your hands or a special "smoother" tool. Work from the middle outwards to expel any bubbles trapped under the surface.

Next: Smoothing the sides of the cake!
