I m fairly new still at cake decorating, I am getting better but seems the square cakes layered on top of one another are the devil for me. Ive made two attempts

at the present box cake and it just looks sloppy. I cant figure out were im going wrong. Suggestions Comments HELP......I want to do this for my moms bday but I don't want to look like the one I most recently did. Neat and clean look is what I am going for......Thanks In advance CC family

Hey there,

 

I love love love the craftsy class by Jessica Harris, Clean and Simple cake design. I am not affiliated with her, but this class taught me so much! If you go on her blog, www.jessicakesblog.blogspot.com, there is a link to the class for 50% off. Best cake instruction I have ever gotten!! 

 

She does a great demo on getting perfect square cakes. She gets perfectly clean lines! Go buy the video!! It is so worth it, and comes with so many great tips. It will change your decorating, believe me.
