I made ToBa Garrett's yellow cake yesterday and I think I didn't wait enough cause when I removed the from the pan both broke like a cross It didn't broke all the way across so I left it alone and wrapped it, can I still iced and cover in fondant? Or should I remake?

I hear of people using broken cake, but when I have tried it, it has not worked for me! When I had a broken layer (broken like a Y), I iced it, trying to use some icing to kind of glue it together (I was using IMBC). But it was the second layer and so it had icing underneath as well, and the pieces just kept sliding off no matter what I did. I had to rebake.

If you have time to rebake, I would advise it. After my experience, I will never again try to use broken cake!

personally i would remake it. you might be ok it this is just a single cake, nothing stacked on it, etc., , but I don't like putting work into something that isn't structurally sound to begin with.

Well it will be a 3 tier stacked cake, this one goes in the middle, and a 6" on top and covered in fondant I better not then
