If you want to join the bandwagon of Tsunami cakes, let’s tell you it’s a piece of cake! First, bake a cake just like you usually do. You can sandwich it with layers of buttercream frosting or ganache. When it comes to the presentation, here’s the fun bit. Instead of enveloping the cake on all sides with a smooth icing layer, just prepare the icing in a more liquidy form. Use cornstarch mixed with milk to get the consistency right for the perfect Tsunami cake icing.

Liquid Icing & Plastic Wrapper Are Essentials For Perfect Tsunami Cakes

Next, wrap the cake on all sides with a layer or plastic cake wrap or acetate. This ensures that the liquid icing stays put. Make sure your plastic wrapping is taller than the cake itself. A tall plastic wrapping will give you enough room to pull it upwards during the big reveal. Finally, pour the liquid icing on top and watch it contained in a single layer on top of the fluffy cake. For your khulja sim sim moment,  set up your camera and just pull the plastic sheet upwards. And voila! The lip-smacking smooth liquid icing, will flow from the top all over the cake and gush over like the waters in a Tsunami.
