Please who can help my cakes still look bumpy under the fondant, I tried cooling the cakes after i cover in buttercream and then laying the fondant, I also tried spraying the with water after cooling then laying the fondant and it still looks bumpy. How do get cakes to look so straight and level under the fondant. Any one who can help thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Txcarebear
Dam your buttercream between the layers. Also, I chill my cakes for overnight-24 hours to let them set up and firm up.
Use a fondant smoother.
Sugarshack has a great video on covering cakes in fondant: www.sugaredproductions.com, I think.
Thnks!!! Next time I'll leave it overnight and see how it comes out.
The only advice that worked for me was in the sugared productions/sugar shack fondant video. The main points for me were: dam your filling, crumbcoat with the bc instead of full layer and make your cake "perfect" before putting the fondant on. This dvd has made a huge difference, it's full of pointers and clear instruction. No more bulges for me
What did I learn from SZ's dvd. After cake has been torted, filled, crumb coated and settled....bend over and trim that cake again. The settling will make it bow and bulge. Trim it for a straight up and down even sides.
Just watached SZ's 'Fondant' DVD the other day. Wonderful!! It would be well worth your time to get it, and it will make a huge difference in your efforts!
