Using a good grout float to spread the mortar into the waffles does a fairly good job of "squeegeeing" off a lot of the excess that would normally smear on top of the waffles. That's a good thing, because excess mortar on top of the waffles likes to flake off and partially clog up your notched-trowel when you're spreading mortar to set the tile. You will be spreading the mortar into the waffles from multiple directions to get them properly filled.
