    Hi Gemma!

    Icing is so hard and stressful and you Gemma make cooking look so easy and fun so if you can it would be lovely if you could make a video on how to ice a cake .

    take care
    God bless


    I’m not a professional but my tips are to not take too long on it and make sure you have a good icing in a good consistency.



    For Icing a cake use a medium consistency icing but don’t use runny or stiff icing because it will be really hard to spread. The best vanilla buttercream I’ve ever used to ice a cake is a swiss meringue buttercream. Gemma has a recipe on youtube,you can use that for the best results.

    Take about 1/2 cup of frosting and thin it out with a little milk or water so it’s very easy to spread. With an offset spatula, spread a thin layer of it on the tops and sides of the cake, then chill until set, about 15 minutes. Repeat if you can still see crumbs showing through the icing. You can also watch the recipe on you tube.
