Description

What better way to practice cake decorating than with a classic meringue-based buttercream? Once you've made the frosting, learn to use a pastry bag and pipe borders, stars, and simple rosettes. To put your new skills (and the buttercream) to use, see Zoë's Perfect Birthday Cake recipe, also on Yummly Pro.
