i made a sheet cake, the BC is cracking every time i move it what do i do. please help
When that has happened to me, I think I didn't have a strong enough board underneath. What thickness are you using?
the board is weak, i doubled it, but what do i do next
Depending on what kind of board you are using, you may need to more than double it.
Thanks for your help, i guess my question should be.... is there a way to fix BC once it has cracked?
Ladybug78, I feel your pain! I'm sorry I don't have the answer but I've had that happen and I'll be watching this thread for myself. Seems like the more you try to fix it the worse it gets..
try using a hot spatula run over the crack

Thanks alene, thats why this site is so amazing, people who can empathize. Unless you are a caker, you can't really understand our frustrations. I don't want people to be understanding of a cracked cake, I want an uncracked cake-lol. Thanks everyone, the cake has been picked up (it was for my sister) but next time i will try a thicker board and a hot spatula.
Ladybug - not sure if this is something you want to try or not, but I use sugarshack's icing recipe and it never gets a "hard" crust on it. It is able to be smoothed even an hour after it has been on the cake. I LOVE it. It is an amazing icing!! I have accidentally put a finger in it and it still smooths out like it never was there. It gets to where you can smooth it with a viva - but never gets hard - you may want to try it and see if it is something you like.
only thing that works is a hot spatula, its happened to me quite a few times
