okay, no one's looking at my cake.
take a peek. spanx cake:
Thanks for sharing. I so was expecting to see a pair of Spanx!
This is a GORGEOUS design, but I see what you mean! Awesome that you're able to laugh at yourself though!
I've had this happen, and it's almost ALWAYS due to the fact that the filling was too runny and that I didn't let the cake set up enough first.
Now, I use the good old Wilton method of filling (BC dam, with filling in the middle) and then crumb coat the cake and put it in the fridge for a LONG time... sometimes overnight. That way, if the cake is going to settle, it will do it before the fondant goes on. Then, you cover the cake with more BC to even out any of those "sags" that may have popped up, then refrigerate MORE, another hour or two. Try not to cover a cake with fondant until the cake has been covered in BC (or ganache) and has chilled thoroughly.
what does "spanx" cake mean?
Too funny!!! I was just talking to one of my girl friends about spanx 2 nights ago...
Hey indydebi - they are undergarments that smooth everything out ... www.spanx.com
indydebi... She means the cake has bulges, and needs to be sucked in ! ( in older days a girdle ) Spanx suck you in and hide all of that !
LOL Debi Spanx is an undergarment that smooths out the bulges we don't like to look at clothed or unclothed. Ruth is saying the bulges in her cake need Spanx.
OHHHHH! You mean a GIRDLE cake! Well, why didn't you young whippersnappers say so!!
You can't imagine what perverted thing *I* was thinking of!!
I knew you would understand GIRDLE ! How funny ! And get those nasty thoughts out of your mind ! You really do learn new things on CC!
I wish it were only that my cakes needed Spanx instead of ME!!! I have serious cake bulge........!!!!!!!
