went to put my 12" top layer on and it cracked. Tried to bc together and fill in. It's in the fridge setting up before crumb coat. Should I be scared? I have 6/9 dummies and 2 2" foam seperators going on top of it. All fondant. What should I do?
I'd be very nervous putting all that weight on a cracked cake. Even though the dummies are light surely the fondant will weigh them down. If it were me I'd want to redo. Sorry
You could also flip the cake over and have the cracked layer on the bottom. It' really going to depend on how bad the layer cracked. If it's just a small one, you can use it, but if it's cracked in half, I'd ay rebake.
There shouldn't be any weight on top of a cake. The weight should be on the supports so that shouldn't be the issue. The issue would be whether or not the cake will hold the dowels/straws, etc.
Ohhh....if it's bigger than an inch down into the cake I'd be scared. I always go for a sure thing and don't like taking chances. If there was nothing on top and it was fondant covered I wouldn't be as worried.
