Hi Everyone!

Okay, so I iced my cake, let it crust, iced again, let it crust, smoothed with Viva and fondant smoother. Cake sat for about 45 min. and then an air bubble popped out on the side. I have tried resmoothing (works for a min. but comes back) and I tried popping it with toothpick (works for a bit, but after smoothing comes back). Just wondering what I have done wrong for future reference and how do you get the air bubble out.
Thanks in advance!

Welcome to CC, georgiapuddinpie! You'll love it here!
My input on your question is that if the cake came from the freezer or fridge and didn't have time to come to room temp. before icing, the little bubbles appear in response to the temp. and moisture changes going from cold to room air.
Let the cake come to room air prior to icing.

And again....welcome!!!

Thanks so much for the tip, answer and especially the welcome. I did ice the cake out of the refridgerator. Next time I will take your advice. Again thank you!
