cut strips of parchment paper

spread it with a knife


spread it evenly


Now place the other cake on top too


spoon some more frosting

use the knife to go around the sides


the top need not be perfect


but make sure the sides are smooth..
you can dip the knife in
some hot water and go around the sides

i used this tip


spooned the frosting into a piping bag


and make small piping

  9. I love vegan cake.

    But from the past few days baking has become a disaster.

    When I bake the cake, I normally preheat the oven at 180 degree Celsius for 4 to 5 mins. Then when I keep the cake , if I continue keeping at 180, the cake burns😣

    and if I bring it down to 155 or 160 degree Celsius not sure how ,but the cake kind of becomes hard and gets over baked at the top and remains little unbaked inside.

    Please help me on how do I adjust this to ensure that the cake becomes soft,get baked correctly and doesn't burn.
