How to Make a Cake Collar for Decorating

Frosting a cake can be hard enough without having to clean the serving plate afterwards! To keep your cake plate clean while frosting, use this simple trick with parchment paper.


First trace around the cake pan onto parchment paper.


Cut out the circle to create a piece of paper with a hole cut to the size of your cake. Slide the paper over the cake layers so it covers the exposed edges of the platter.


Frost the cake and, when finished, remove the collar, snipping it with scissors on each side of the cake, then pull away the pieces of paper.
