Do I Need To Let A Cake Cool Before Frosting It?

Let Cake Cool Before Frosting It

Frosting a cake can be one of the most difficult parts of baking a cake. If you are going to do it the traditional way, let the cake cool off for at least four hours, or preferably overnight. Slice off a thin layer, or if the cake is domed, then the top. Use a pastry brush to clean off loose crumbs. Take a spoon of icing and put it on a serving plate to keep the cake from sliding around. Gently use the brush to slather on icing, but not too thick.
