Place one cake on a board. Spread
an even layer of icing on top of the
cake and cover with second cake

cake with buttercream or fondant.
Decorate the sides with the letters
and dots. Pipe “stitching” on the
four corners of the cake with tip

optional decorations. Add reverse
shell border with tip #21.
