2. Stacking the cake

In this lesson, Rose places and stacks the cake in and around the structure. As no one will be eating this cake Rose doesn’t layer or fill the cake but of course you can fill it with buttercream, ganache or whichever filling you would like.

3. Carving the body

So we see here that it’s all about little bits at a time. Not cutting huge sections off in one foul swoop just to be fast, but small considered cuts. Keep spinning the cake around and making sure it’s the same either side.
