When it s time to frost a cake, there is one major enemy you need to look out for: crumbs.

This simple practice will keep your cake layers intact, and keep crumbs from invading your pristine frosting.

As Sheela Prakash at The Kitchn explains, trying to frost a cake right after its done baking is a recipe for disaster.

To avoid that, wrap each layer of cake in plastic wrap and stick them in the fridge for at least a couple of hours overnight if possible .

Once the layers are chilled, you can trim them as needed and carefully apply a layer of frosting without worrying about crumbs.

If you want apply more frosting, or plan to decorate the cake, it doesn t hurt to stick the cake back into the fridge for another 15 minutes beforehand.
