I am nervous about cake not looking smooth. There were so many gaps between layers before I crumb coated it with buttercream. Looks smooth in refrigerator now though..but will it still look smooth once covered in fondont and sits at the party? I spackeled the gaps really smooth...just hopes it will hold up. What do you think?

As long as you've let the cake rest and, ideally, compressed the layers after they were filled with a weight, they should be fine.

Here's a picture of the inside of a cake that I had to rely on spackle for since I couldn't trim the sides. Outside of the cake looked absolutely perfect.

I cannot see the pic of the cake before the fondont. I only see the finished cake...so beautiful!

Ack! I don't know what happened. My picture wouldn't attach, then gremlins invaded my computer. Seems to be working now.

Anyway, you can see the layer of spackle on the side between the cake and the fondant. The cake was kind of an 'hourglass' shape, but the spackle filled it in beautifully.

there is some error with pictures that are posting to threads tonight. There should be what looks like a second attachment that has a box with a red X in it. Click on this and the photo will pop open in a new window.

The lettering in the grey box is just saying that something isn't working right.

Oh wow...that gives me hope.... so just alot of spackle with buttercream should do the trick. Thank you so much!
