What can I do to fix this buldge? Take it apart or leave it alone? Please see back side of cake in my photos - sorry i could not get it to attach.

My cake is Red Velvet cake with Ganach Fillng with a Buttercream Dam covered in Fondant. I have 5 tea straws in the bottom tier. I refrigerated the cakes with the dam of buttercream and ganache before I put top layer of cake and buttercream top coat - then refrigerated again before putting on fondant. I did this for both tiers - except no straws in top tier.

I have since poked the fondant with a toothpick in case air was trapped under the fondant. Currently it is in the fridge to hopefully keep buldge from getting worse.

Pleae any advise would be appreciated

i'm sorry icon_sad.gif the only thing you can do at this point is pin prick it and smooth the air out. when the cake goes from the cool to the heat you get air bubbles that are caused from the elements. unless someone else has a better idea...I would keep it in the fridge for now or in an air conditioned room

Should I leave it alone or try to take it apart and redo before pickup tonight?
