Noticing bits of cake coming off as you try to frost it? No worries!
Reserve one-half cup of your frosting in a separate bowl. Microwave it for 20 to 30 seconds until it has a more liquid consistency. Then, top the half-frosted cake with your choice of chopped candy bars, nuts, mini marshmallows, crumbled cookies or any combination desired. The texture of these added ingredients will mask any imperfections!
Once you have those additional ingredients in place, drizzle the still warm, melted frosting over the cake in an organic pattern. The frosting will coat the extra toppings and ensure they stick to the cake. Allow to cool completely before serving.GET THE RECIPE
