You just created a beautiful, moist cake. The cake has cooled and you are ready to top it with frosting.
Problem: As you spread the frosting, it sticks to the cake, pulling up the beautifully golden brown top. Now your cake is topped with clumps.
Solution: Use ice water to make spreading your frosting easier.
Dip your knife or spatula into ice water before spreading. Sounds crazy but it works.
