Introduction

Today, learning the culinary art of baking cakes is in trend and also super fun. Baking a perfect cake is a Herculean task but the most challenging part is to cover the cake flawlessly and make it look smooth. It’s very important to give your cake a nice finishing so that it looks more delicious and irresistible. Here are a few tips you can rely on to get smooth cake covering:

Choose the right fondant

Considering the hectic schedule of our daily life, it is really time consuming to make a fondant from scratch. However, we can rely on commercial fondants to give our cake a smooth covering. There are numerous brands to choose a fondant from but you have to check certain things before choosing the right fondant for your cake. For instance, you should always pick the best flavors, check the colors available and the price of the fondant.

Make your icing smooth

For a smooth surface, the icing on your cake should be smooth. Always use a spatula to get a smooth icing for your cake. Icing a cake to a smooth finish is quite difficult for a beginner to learn. It takes a lot of patience and practice.

Knead your fondant sufficiently

It’s important to knead your fondant before covering your cake. To make the kneading easier, dividing the fondant into several pieces makes the kneading easier. Add a lump of glycerin to make the fondant smoother. Now, put together the several kneaded pieces of fondant and knead it for the last time until it’s warm, smooth and elastic.

Roll out the fondant

Before rolling out the fondant, make sure the surface is clean and dry.
Start with measuring the sides and top of the cake with the help of the rolling pin. Then, roll out the fondant according to the taken measurement. To ensure an even thickness of the fondant, you can also use spacers. Once the fondant is ready, you should use the rolling pin to put the fondant on the cake.

Cut the excess fondant from the cake

Once you put the fondant on the top of the cake, use your hands to smooth it. Now, trim off the excess fondant using a Pizza or Pastry cutter. You can also use a palette knife to remove the extra fondant. This will not lead to a smooth trimming of fondant without leaving rough edges.
These were some baking hacks to give your cake a smooth covering. So, bake a delicious smooth cake with these easy guidelines and get the best compliments of your life.
