When my cake was done setting, my dam must have not been big enough and I had a filling blow out.. Is this still salvageable to continue on decorating or am I going to have continual problems with this cake??? Any suggestions.?
Is it iced? You could just try plugging up the area with more frosting.
no it is only crumb coated...but I am afraid if I scrape away the blow out and ice it, it will still ooze. Hoping someone has done this successfully and can offer advice.
Did you weight the cake during the settling process?
Don't mean to "hijack" your post, but Leah, what do you mean by weight? How would one do that? All that comes to mind is pressing flowers That can't be it. Please share your boundless wisdom
Leah - I just want to say that I did not take your weight advice on the last cake I made. Bad girl. I let the cake set an hour without the weight thinking that would be fine because it was not a stacked cake. Well, needless to say I still got the bulge. Live and learn. It was the cake for my last class of course 1 of the Wilton class. At least I didn't get graded. I still got the diploma even with the bulge.
Next time - Mother's day cake for this weekend - I will get brave and weight the cake. I even bought the ceramic tile and everything and was still too chicken to try it!
yeah I put weight on it for several hours.
