The Top Lip

How to Frost a Rectangular Sheet Cake

Once the sides are roughly squared, while the frosting is still soft, use a medium offset spatula to level off the lip that formed around the top edge. Remember to keep the blade tilted up so that only the back edge of it makes contact with the cake. This part takes some practice to master, especially with squared cakes.

You can also push the offset spatula in a downward motion to remove excess frosting that’s hanging over the top edge of the cake. If the edges and corners still look uneven at this stage, that’s okay. Patch up any areas that look thin but leave the corners and edges still a little bulky. Later, when the cake is cold,  you can scrape away the rest. Return the cake to the refrigerator for an hour or until the second coat is fully hardened.
