Don't be lazy, take a second and smooth out the cake batter once you've DO NOT try to cool the cake quickly by placing it in the refrigerator.
How long are you suppose to let the cake cool? If you don't want to take the time to crumb coat, you can get a big icer tip and put the icing on When Do You 'turn Out' Your Cakes?.
About 45 minutes to an hour is the average. I've tried putting the pan in the refrigerator to speed the cooling process, but it seems to make the cake Im baking cake right now how long do I wait till i frost?.
