I freeze my cakes in advance. They always taste moist and delicious when thawed out. This morning I took my cakes out to defrost and noticed that one of my cakes had about a 1/2" dent in the bottom of it from something that it was resting on =( =(

I don't know how badly the cake looks because it is still wrapped up in foil and saran wrap. My question is, will my cake be ok? Should I bake another cake? Will the dent even out when completely defrosted? If I use this cake will there be any "settling" that can occur once I have it decorated and iced? Has this ever happened to any one?????

Thank you =)

i dont think that this cake is going to level out once thawed. the size of the dent will really determine if the rest of the cake will be affected.

I just had that happen to me. The dent does not come out when the cake thaws. Fortunately, my dents were on the sides and were not big, so I just used my BC to fill them, and 2 days later, there was no settleing. If the dent isn't too big - you should be able to fill it with a stiff BC and avoid settling. If the dent is big, the other possibility is if you have same flavor cake leftover that you can cut a piece to fit and fill it in with a little BC.

I had this happen to. No settling. I just filled it with BC.

Thank you for the help! Once I get it unwrapped and see how the cake looks I will decide what to do.

I agree. Filling it with thick/stiff buttercream will do.

If it's on the bottom there's no problem, just make sure that surface is on the bottom of the stack/finished product & no one will ever know.

You can make a cake "spackle" with trimmings and BC. Works great.
