1. Height: Make sure your cake is at least three layers high so that you get a nice tall professional looking cake. It looks better when you have a small cake that is tall, rather than a larger cake that is short. I try to make my cakes at least 4" high.
2. Size: I think the perfect size for a cake is an 8" three layer round. It feeds about 20-25 depending on the height. It is best to cut your layers evenly and apply frosting evenly to get a level top.
3. Clean Edges: Get your ProFroster ready! What makes a cake look elegant and professional is having straight edges even with minimal or no decorations.
