This is hands down the easiest, most foolproof way to frost an entire cake in 2 minutes. The icing on the cake is that you don’t need to invest in any special equipment — just your microwave and a can of your favorite store-bought frosting.
(And you’ll need a cake too, of course, unless you’re just planning on pouring the melted frosting directly into your mouth — in which case, we get it.)
This hack makes frosting a cake as easy as 1. zap, 2. pour, 3. try to convince everyone that you didn’t just buy a cake from a bakery. It’s cake frosting for dummies — not that we’re calling anyone a dummy! In fact, everyone will be calling you a cake boss when they see your professional-looking frosting skills.
Here at TipHero, we’ve made so many cookies and brownies that we could do it with our eyes closed. But whenever we bake a cake, for some reason we always feel like the pressure is on. Maybe it’s because no one bakes a cake simply because they feel like eating cake— although, come to think of it, that should change. Usually when we’re baking a cake it’s for a special celebratory occasion, so we want it to be perfect.
But we’ve all had it happen; the cake you slaved over comes out of the oven looking fabulous, and just when you’re about to breathe a sigh of relief, you remember that you’re not done yet — that sucker still needs to be frosted. If your icing tends to turn out lumpy, uneven, sloppy, or full of little crumbs (!!), this hack is going to change your life.
