To Decorate


  • If frozen, move cake to the fridge 5 hours prior to decorating. Keep in packaging.

  • Thaw buttercream, at room temp for 1 hour prior to decorating. Use hand to knead and warm pre-filled piping bags prior to use
  • Before decorating, ensure the cake is thawed. Do not decorate frozen. Gently pat dry any moisture with a paper towel.

Cake Board
Attach cake to 9” board for easier handling and to add decorating surface:

  • If buttercream provided in container: Use popsicle stick to stir and softed
    • Fill piping bag: Fold over top of bag
    • Scoop buttercream into very bottom (toward tip). Unfold.
    • Twist excess plastic while pushing buttercream down as low as possible. Tie if desired.

Decorating Your Cake

  • When ready to place decorations, remove the cake from the fridge

Store After Decorating

  • To preserve freshness, use plastic wrap to gently surround and drape decorated cake and tuck underneath the board. Store in the fridge.
  • Remove from fridge and leave at room temp 1 hour before serving.
