How can I decorate my cake without tools?
If you don’t have an icing spatula, you can use the back, straight edge of a large knife to smooth your buttercream and then clean up the bottom of your cake plate with a paper towel. Next, take a freezer bag and fill it with your icing . Push the icing into one corner and twist the bag.
What can I use if I don’t have a cake turntable?
Lazy Susan The best substitute for a traditional turntable is its shorter, less expensive cousin, the lazy Susan. Pull the spice bottles off the one in your cupboard, or stop by the home goods store to pick up an inexpensive one. Most are made of wood, plastic, or in my case, stone.
