The tips she gives can be given really quickly.
She lets the cake rest to avoid bulging after she fills it (using the standard thick frosting around the middle practice), icing cracking. Put tons of frosting on the cake to make it even. The Viva papertowel trick to smooth out icing. I think her best part was how she made her icing, the technique.
For the 31$ I paid for this thing, I am really saddened. What a waste.
