Icing  Hints

When filling layers, use less filling than you usually would.
Your dam of icing should also be far enough from the edge so the filling doesn’t flow out and form a bubble in the icing.
The Wilton cake icer tip (# 789) is an invaluable timesaver in icing wedding tiers.
You will have fewer crumbs when icing, if cakes are baked a day in advance.
