  • Misting the frosting as you are smoothing it will help it smoothen better but good job 👍

  • Why is she making an icing for a cake?...

  • To get icing to spread in a consistent way warming it to at least room temperature or even a little bit warmer tends to work really well for a nice soft coding

  • omg, i love them... my birthday is coming up and I wanna do them, they are sooo cute... You could have cut the bigger piece into two, that would have made them three pretty even pieces. ily

  • Just watch Life Love and Sugar videos.. they are fast and you will get a lot of ideas quickly. But you did really great though for a first time! My other fav channel if you want easy from scratch cooking is Sugar Spun Run. She also quickly explains with alot of great tips and secrets. PS: Many people do what's called a crumb coating of a thin layer of frosting to catch the crumbs before adding the real they usually frost sides first and top last.

  • Meanwhile me, being an avid baker, cringing so hard wanting to teach you what and how to do this . . .for starters ALWAYS FOLLOW THE RECIPE baking is an edible version of grade school chemistry, also the leveler you can adjust the height of the wire and place the feet along your counter or cake table or whatever and get perfectly level cuts, to prevent the cake from wobbling around put a small amount maybe quarter sized for these cakes in between the bottom layer and the surface of the turntable then proceed to add 'icing' (frosting) and layers, also frosting decorations can be piped onto parchment paper and frozen then transferred onto the cake which allows a lot of wiggle room for multiple attempts

  • My favorite cake was the purple, the club one looks like under the sea with a bunch of either barnacles or seashells and a tip is to frost the cakes with white first and when you cut them to flip the piece over so it doesn't crumble.

  • I’m sure these have all been said. But crumb coat will make your cake look so much better. Crumb coat then refrigerate or freeze then put your smooth icing over it. Cake leveler was used wrong lol google it. And butter cream. My recipe: 1 cup butter 1 cup shortening 8 cups powdered sugar 2 tbs vanilla mix in a stand mixer then 1tbs at a time of heavy cream until you get to the consistency you like

  • USE A PIPING BAG!!!!!!!! trust me. it will make your life easier when filling a layered cake.

    noonizafarnoonizafar3 dagen geleden
  • I’m by no means a “professional” baker, BUT! I do have a couple tips! Firstly, if you don’t want bits of cake popping through your frosting, you want to do what is called a crumb coat. A light layer of frosting, let it set in the fridge, and then apply more frosting after, like.. 20 minutes. Secondly, to fill the piping bags, it’s easier to place the bag in a cup and then fill them from there so you don’t have to hold it and fill at the same time! Third, when frosting the cake, ( if you want to leave it on the cake stand ) put a bit of parchment around the edges of the cake and pull away once done frosting. It’ll make it easier to keep a “clean” look! And fourth, the tool you were using to cut the cakes is actually meant to be held upright. Though you can really use it however you wish, it’s meant to be held like that specifically to make even layers! All you do is pull it along the counter while moving it in a sawing motion! Additionally, and this is really just a personal preference, but I would have done the cakes in three layers with frosting in between each! It’ll evenly disperse the frosting on the inside of the cake so you aren’t getting too much in one bite at the bottom/top and will also even out the cake a bit better while maintaining the same height! I hope these help with your next baking adventure! These cakes were absolutely adorable and I actually really want to make some of my own, now! 😁

  • Miaa Mia 😅😄😶.... I guess it's because of my OCD, (after not mixing the eggs separately) I couldn't watch the rest after the cutting with the wire part 😂😫.... those cutting tools are meant to help you cut the cake evenly, and use it vertically not horizontally

    Narisa EsmaNarisa Esma3 dagen geleden
  • The thing you used used to cut the cake stand it up on the bench and the wire moves up and down it to create the layers. It’s easier to crumb coat then stick it in the freezer/fridge then decorate that way it will come straight off the turn table. We used to use cake boards and if you want it to stick a little bit to the turntable you can use nonstick mat or just a blob of icing

  • I bake lots and been thinking of starting a NLworld channel about the treats I make but in hesitation. Anyways a tip I have is when you level your cakes flip them upside Down (dome/ rounded side on the bottom to help keep the top flat.😁 hope this helps you for next time Mia I love your videos.

  • Do a pt. 2 where you make a "real" cake! That frosting looks to die for 🤤 Use some flexible little baking spatulas to ice your cake. It'll go a lot smoother. 🍰🧁 Make a cake that says " Eat Me" like the cookies from Alice in wonderland

  • You do not use the cutting tool like that. You can change the hight of the wire and use the table (or something else). If you put the ‘legs’ on the table and the wire is the right hight. You can just drag it. That way it is straight. It’s difficult to explain in text😅

  • Hi Mia when u cut the cake you go back and forth slowly to make it even. Also add a little icing at the bottom so it doesnt move around a lot and to get it smoother you use an icing spatula.

  • Little tip for cutting the cake on the same level, de cutter needs to be turned 90 degrees and lean on its 'paws' then you used it like some sort of a saw. Okay i don't know or this makes any sense, but you could watch a video about it :)

  • I feel like starting with a crumb coat might help with the frosting smoothing etc. Also placing them in the center of the turntable. Making the icing decorations separately, freezing and placing them may also help with precision.

    Jana BisschoffJana Bisschoff9 dagen geleden
  • Hi Mia I am a at home back and love my leveler so when you use it you want to stand it up so the two "legs" are on the ground. then you can adjust the string by moving it up and down to level at different heights so all of the cakes will be the same size. Hope this helps!
