I baked cakes last night and thought they were cooled down and wrapped them in plastic wrap. I just opened them ready to crumb coat but they are almost a wet consistency from the moisture because they were no cooled all the way before wrapping. Can I still crumb coat and cover in fondant or should I let the dry out?

Let them dry out. Your icing won't stay on a wet cake and you may get blowouts if you try to ice over all that moisture. It's still going to try to escape.

Not sure exactly how wet we are talking here, but I plastic wrap my cakes hot...right out of the oven, so they are slightly "wet" when I unwrap them after they have cooled completely. I fill and ice them right away without letting them dry off with no problem, this yields a wonderfully moist cake. But, if they are too wet...and seem delicate due to the moisture, I would let them sit uncovered for a bit and then move forward.

Really??? icon_surprised.gif The only time I had a blow out was when a cake had some condensation which I didn't had time to let it dry out...I just dabbed at it with a paper towel. icon_sad.gif I wonder if it was something else???

Thank you all for your advise. It wasn't too bad. I dabbed it with a towel and that seemed to help out. It was hard to explain lol sorry for the confusion. Very new at this. icon_smile.gif
