Need a quick combing design? Try this criss-cross pattern in four easy steps.


1. Turn the cake lengthwise. Start combing at the top left-hand corner of the cake.

2. Pull the comb lengthwise across the left-hand side of the cake. Keep the comb parallel to the top and side of the cake.


3. With a medium spatula, design diagonal lines by dragging the spatula on a diagonal starting at the left and dragging downwards toward the right.  


4. Repeat Step 3, reversing the direction of the diagonal lines.
