How to Make the Perfect Cake with Ro | Everything You Want to Know from Rosanna Pansino


Hey guys, it’s Ro. Some of you may know
me from my online banking show and I got so many questions from you guys
about how to assemble and decorate the perfect cake so today I will be showing
you some tips and tricks of how to decorate a cake let’s get started when
I’m decorating a cake like to break it down into four steps level, stack, ice and
decorate. The first step is to level our cakes we’re gonna do this so that when
we stack them they will be even you have even cake in front of me I have
2 8 inch round baked cakes both of these cake the had plenty of time to cool and
I even placed them in the refrigerator to completely chilled to prevent coming to
level your cake you can use a sharp cutting knife but I like to use a cake
leveler because it makes it super even and I don’t have to worry that I’ve
kinda at a diagonal angle which me free handing I do that so what you do is you just
place it down as little feet at the bottom and then you can adjust this wire
on the side has these little notches so you can pick the height so I picked the
where it just skims the top to make the top flat and then you just walk
him and go back and forth then you’re gonna take up this little top layer
now this next up is totally optional but if you like icing like I do I would
highly suggest it. Your gonna take the two cakes and you’re gonna cut them in half
again called torting like a tortoise To tort these cakes I just moved the little
wired a couple notches and you want to make sure that it’s hitting about midway
halfway through your cake until we have successfully level and torted and
now it’s on to Step 2 which is a stacking second step is to stack our cakes over here
I have the first layer of cake on turntable I love these things. I’ll show
you why later but they make decorating and icing so much easier. The first
thing that we’re gonna do is get some icing in a plastic baggie with the
number 12 tip and I’m just gonna outline the cake some people call this making a dam
and I think it’s looks like a little fence and you go all the way around.
This is a really good tip if you using a different color icing or a jam to fill the layers in
your cake to keep it all in there so I’m gonna be using a pink frosting for the
middle then I’m just gonna take a little nine-inch spatula and spread it
around so it’s nice and even alright we just finished her first layered look at
that and now we’re gonna add our second layer you can pick it up with your hand
or you can use the cake lifter I’ll show you that latter. Try to line it up as
best you can and then just do the same icing technique making a dam all the
way around and then filling it in Here’s a little tip for the last layer you’re gonna
flip the crummy side down leaving the top baked bottom so it’s a little bit
easier to ice less crumbs. Our cake is totally stacked and assembled and now it’s onto our third step which is to ice the cake. I have placed some whtie icing into a
plastic baggie with a frosting tip wanna make sure to put the teeth down
and the smooth part up this is totally optional you can just scoop the icing
on top of the cake and spread it flat with a spatula but I like to use a bag
for a little bit more control cuz I need it okay so I’m gonna do is start one the
outside and gonna work my way all the way around this is where the
turntable comes in handy even just spin it you can let the icing hang over
the edge that’s ok. Filling it in I’m working my way towards the center like a bulls eye. Once you iced the top of the cake you’re gonna take a larger spatula this
one is a 13 inch spatula I love it I love to use the big spatulas for the icing of
the outsides of the cake and you’re just gonna slowly level it smooth it out now that we’ve
iced in smooth out the top of the cake we’re gonna to add icing to the sides of the
cake so again I just have some icing in a plastic baggie with the frosting tip this the technique that I like to do it’s totally optional we’re just gonna hold
your hand stationary it’s not going to go anywhere
and I’ll start applying pressure and spinning the turntable around as we go and now
we’re gonna do the bottom layer here we go one more time around now sides of the cake are iced in now we’re
gonna smooth side I’m gonna be using my large spatula I really liked it because
it’s offset so keep your hand out of the icing and all you are going to do is just place it here
and again I’m going to try not to move it and just turn the turntable all the way around
and putting it at a bit of an angle it will be perfect the first time
around so I’m go around a few times now the top and sides of the cake are smooth
but you’ll see we have this ridge of icing all the way around the cake
from the overhang which helps the icing connect so it looks really good but now
we are going to flatten it oir little spatula Your gonna take the little special again and what we are going to do
is on the corner gently pull it towards you Once you iced your cake a really cool trick
to give it a polished look is to let it sit for about 15 minutes or until the
icing has crust over a good test is to take your finger lightly touch it if it doesn’t
stick it’s ready then take a piece of parchment paper place it over the top of our cake I like to make
gentle circles and this will smooth out any of the cracks or wrinkles giving it
a really polished smooth look and you can do this all over your cake now for
the final step step 4 time to decorate which is my favorite step you can decorate your cake however you’d like but what I like to do is first decorate the sides
because it’s the trickiest. First decorations that I’m going to do is do little loops all around the side
of the cake this is called swag. To put some swag on your cake your going to place some icing in a plastic baggie and I’m using a number 18 tip you can
use whatever you’d like but I like the little star look and you start at the
top of the cake and then making a loop and ending right at the top again know that our cake has swag we’re
gonna decorate the bottom border I love the part just because it just makes your cakes look so
finished over here I got some pink icing in a plastic bag with a number
21 tip to make little stars these are really easy all you have to do is
squeeze the bag holding it in the same position and then lift up and boom
little stars and just go all the way around the cake the last thing that
we’re gonna pipe is the top border we’re gonna do the same thing as the
bottom but we’re gonna go all the way around on the top of the cake this will
also hide your swag connecting points. Alright We’re done piping and now it’s time to decorate the top. I’m going to be sprinkling a little rainbow jimmies sprinkle I love these they’re so
cute and they have pink in there so it will match our pink icing but this is
where you can customize your cake to be whatever you’d like you could play a
little message on the top like happy birthday or congratulations. Here’s
the cake that we’ve made today I hope this video on how to assemble and
decorated cake is helpful for you guys even if you guys make this cake or your

  4. You might want to try putting a small notch in the cakes after you level them and before torting so you can line them back up correctly later.

  5. Soon after your done with the cake should you put it in the fridge to prevent the icing from weighing off the side?

  6. Thank you for your fun, professional video. Lots of information and personality with no wasted time or unnecessary filler.
