Too Late To Fill Cake?

I was so focused on the design of my cake that I actually forgot to fill it! It is a small 3 tier original WASC recipe, covered in BC and frozen.

I'm considering cutting through (around dowels) while it's frozen and filling with BC. Because it's a mountain/cave and the icing is haphazardly applied, it's easy to fix the flaws afterwards.

Is this really risky? Will I compromise the integrity of the structure if I do this and regret it?

If I don't fill it, it's not THAT big of a deal, the cake is still relatively small (narrow) and there's lots of BC on it. And the gal I'm making it for, will serve ice cream with it!

Wow! I wouldn't take that chance! Scary!

I recently made a cake that because of it's structure, had very little bc in or on it. So, I sent a little container of extra icing along with the cake. icon_smile.gif

What about injecting the cake with filling using the bismark tip?

Cutting fzn cake isn't easy! icon_sad.gif With the info you have given I think I'd leave it alone.

Thanks, everyone - great idea about sending the extra icing too. But I will leave it alone!

However I am interested in this 'injection process'.. I've never heard of it. What would be the best filling? How do you do it and what's a bismark tip?
