I made a moist cake on Friday and decorated it Saturday. Today I woke up and the frosting is hard as a rock. How do i fix it and prevent it in the future? Patiently awaiting any response, thank you thank you
You could try sealing it in an airtight container for a while and see if that helps. Is the frosting hard all the way through or did it just crust?
Thanks for responding. It seems to very, some areas are hard all the way through and others are just on the top.
What type of icing is it? (Sounds like it could be fudge...)
The following thread has links to popular CC recipes for crusting American b/c's, fondant and doctored cake mix (WASC in various flavors):
Here's a link that describes the different types of frostings/icings:
(And has handy troubleshooting chart on last page.)
Thank you for the reply. The second site is helpful. I'll try it differently and hope that it doesn't happen again. It was still edible.
