Base Frosting Coat (for cake construction projects)

This recipe was adapted from Favorite All Time Recipes, Birthday cakes For Kids, copyright 1991 by Publications Internaitonal, Ltd. ISBN: 1-56173-466-7

I always coat my cakes in both glaze and base coat if I'm doing construction. The recipes say glaze or base coat; I do both. Refrigerate (or otherwise cool) your cakes after coating.
