How to decorate icing on a cake

Once you have added your icing to your cake, there are several cake-decorating tools you can use to take your decorating game to the next level.


Want an iced cake that looks like it's been sanded smooth? What you need is an icing smoothing tool to help even the surface of your icing. These tools should be used while your icing is fresh and hasn't set, otherwise your icing will crumble when you try to flatten it. These tools look like flat pieces of plastic that you either use the edge of to smooth the sides of your cake, or the bottom of to smooth the top of a cake.

Spatula/cake knife

If you want to apply your icing in controlled layers or make beautiful peaks and swirls, the tool you need is a specialised cake spatula/knife. These angled blades allow you to apply swathes of icing without getting your hand or the edge of the handle in the icing. The fine edges can be used to flatten stray edges or lift the icing into peaks and waves, depending on the look you want to go for.
