      Thanks. I have a rotating cake thingy for decorating cakes. They’re like $10 from Michaels. SO worth it for frosting layer cakes. Anyways, I spread the mousse on, then I just hold the knife and rotate the plate so it spins. Slowly pull the knife in towards the middle while it’s spinning and voila – a nice swirl! And it’s fun to do 🙂
