Quick Cake Decoration

A fast and effective way to finish a cake requires only a paper lace-type doily and powdered sugar (or cocoa powder). Simply center the doily on top of the cake and sprinkle on a light, even layer of sugar. Carefully lift the doily off of the cake (straight up) and you should be left with an attractive design.
