How to Neatly Frost the Cake
Freeze cake layers about 20 min. before frosting. This helps to set the crumbs on the cut edges of the cake layers so they don't pull up into the frosting. And don't worry if the frosting does not look perfect on the sides of the cake--the nuts will cover any imperfections.
How to Cut the Cake
For ease in cutting, first cut the layer cake lengthwise, then crosswise 8 times.
