I am fairly new to cake decorating and today was my 1st experience with a semi-disaster
I made a cake for a friend today (chocolate cherry) and I frosted it with buttercream and put some fondant accents on the sides. All good so far...
When I delivered it to her, about 1 hour after I made it, it had a HUGE bubble on the top of it. WHY????
Can someone please tell me what I did wrong? and How can I avoid from it happing it again?
Thank you in advance to all who offer their assistance/comments.
I know it has to do with letting the cake sit after filling and leveling before icing it, but I want to "listen in" to the responses you get
Would love to see a picture to see what it looked loke.
my question.. did you let the cake settle before you iced it...
was the bubble in the icing, or was it the sides of the cakes drooping?
if it was a bubble, it could be that your crumb coat was too dry when you applied your final coat...
im sorry, but we all hav tragedies happen to us!!! shrug it off and think.. it is only cake!
FEAR NOT THE CAKE.... LITTLE ONE!
pinklesley1 - I let it settle for an hour or so before I iced it. The bubble was on the top of the cake (it was a BIG bubble). I applied a crumb coat and then iced it right after. I will shrug it off ... thanks for the encouragement
Parable - Sorry I didn't take a picture after the bubble appeared, I had dropped it off at my friend's house already ... sorry
