Avengers - Loki sweet and innocent

Tip: How to ice a cake and not make a mess of the cake board :)

Y'know how drizzle or pouring icing/frosting always seems to make a mess of the lovely shiny cake board? If you're feeling brave you can ice the cake on something else then move it, but with sticky icing or a really large cake this can be a nightmare.

There is a simple way to avoid both problems (I think I picked this up from a TV chef, possibly Barefoot Contessa):

All you do it put pieces of grease proof/parchment paper around and just under the edges of the cake. Then you can make a mess and once you're done, remove the paper and the board still looks lovely.

Word of warning, if your icing has pooled, use a spatula or knife to separate the superfluous icing from the cake before pulling away the paper, or you might pull away some that is attached to your cake.
