When frosting a cake, if the cake starts coming apart mid-frost, toss the frosting in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds- it will be a breeze after that. Make sure the frosting isn't runny though or else it'll be a hot mess. Fun (?) Fact: when the cake falls apart, it's usually because the cake temperature vs the frosting temperature is off. I'm told it's ideal to have a cold cake and room temperature frosting. Regulating these temps sounds like more work than I'd like to sign up for- hence this tip!
Is anyone else craving cake now?
