Upgrading a grocery store cake

I’ve recorded for your viewing pleasure a lapse video of decorating a grocery store cake, specifically two vanilla buttercream iced cakes (5″ and 8″). I turned it into a two tier cake with sugar flowers!

How did I do it???

The cakes were frozen, so I took a bowl of boiling hot water, dipped my offset spatula into it, wiped off the water, and slowly scraped off all the colorful icing until I was left with the base coating of white buttercream.

Then I stacked the cake, inserted the sugar flowers, and voila!
