Combing a Cake

Create a textured surface on the cake sides.


Difficulty: Easy


Step 1

Cover the cake with a slightly thicker coating of icing so the comb’s ridges will not touch the cake. Hold comb at a 45 degree angle.

Step 2

Turn the turntable as you run the comb edge over the surface. Use different combs and edges to add different contoured effects to your iced cake.

Step 3

Choose the type of effect you want—wide or narrow—then run that edge around your cake to form ridges.

Hint: Comb immediately after icing cake, while icing is soft. Using a turntable helps to keep the movement of your comb smooth, so your surface will be perfect.
