New here & new to cake making / decorating. I have decided to make my daughters birthday cake after never baking a cake in my life!
Since this great brain fart (not wave) I have spent loads on cake tins, decorating tools, ingredients ect. I have now make 4 spong cakes which have all came out lovely to my suprisment.
Anyway I am ready to now start the actual cake in the next few days.
Just have one really silly question, what do I put on the cake before covering it with icing?
Like can I just fill the cake with say buttercream & them put icing directly onto the sponge? Or do I need to cover the whole cake in buttercream? Or something else?
My biggest fear is covering the cake! I have been reading & watching techniques but everyone makes it looks so easy!
I know I sound really stupid, attempting a birthday cake an not even knowing what I'm guessing you call the 'basics'
Any tips, recipes or info would be really appreciated
