See how when you have a lip and you just pull it over there, squares off the top of the cake. Sweep it over. Sqaure off that edge. This side the lip has tipped over onto the side so I'm going to go back. Sometimes you end up going over that's all. Go back, straighten that side, get that lip to stand up. There you go.

Now I'm going to just grab it with the knife and just pull it over the top. See, grab it with the knife and just pull it over the top. Okay, we're getting flatter. As you can see, it is difficult to get a shieet cake nice and flat. We're going to do the best we can. Now I'm just going to go flatten out that that whole top back and forth.
