An Easy, Minimalist Way to Decorate a Cake

For a quick and easy way to smooth out frosting and decorate a cake, head for your craft and sewing supplies. Using pinking shears, cut a square of stiff cardboard (like a cereal box) and drag it around the frosted cake for a pretty, and easy, finish. This technique works for a minimalist cake, or add additional decoration for something more fancy.
