I've iced the cakes with a buttercream that normally crusts pretty fast - however right now, they are still sticky after about 45 minutes. Not sure if it's the weather (it's getting ready to storm) or the fact that my cakes were cold ..
Is there anything I can do to speed up the process... I've got a lot of piping to do and I don't want to be up all night!
Thanks so much for any assistance!
prob cuz they were cold, they are sweating
maybe a gentl fan will help
Yah aboutr the only thing now is to put them in the path of a fan lightly blowing on them.
will the sweating eventually stop and the BC crust? or am I SOL... and I need to redo the cakes?
it should stop; just depends upon how cold they were when u iced them as to how long it will take.
I use a non-crusting icing and pipe directly on it. Why can't you go ahead and pipe the design?
needed it to crust to get it smooth.. I'm not really good with the hot knife yet..
fan did the trick... although it made it crust a little too much!
Thanks for all your help!
PS- Sugarshack - it was your icing recipe...
i think it was the cakes were cold.
i dont ice cold, so I never have that problem.
good luck with the rest of the cake!
