I am making my second wedding cake (an ambitious one at that), the bride wanted chocolate, carrot and cheesecake tiered. I thought it would be fine and the small cakes, 6" and 8" were a breeze. Unfortunately the 12" cracked, in more than one place....what do i do. i dont have time to bake these three flavours over again what do you suggest i do. I was thinking to hollow out the center and place something really sturdy in the middle...cover it with fondant of course and just let the bride know.
Are all three tiers composed of three different flavored cake layers... Is that why you can't rebake the 12 inch?
I'm sorry, but I don't understand at all what you want to do to save the 12" layer...

yes that was the problem. the 12" was all three flavors. Well I delivered it. It held up okay. one of the cracked showed a little and I covered it with frosting. It was a risk...but I had no choice. Thanks for your time though
Chocolate, carrot and cheesecake all layered in one cake?
Yeha, I can't see eating those three in one bite either. Definetly the cheesecake with the carrot or the chocolate with the cheesecake. But all three, interesting.
