I've been getting mixed answers online about this. I put a jelly filling in the cake and then covered it with fondant. The cake is starting to bulge a bit, so I put it in the fridge about 5 minutes ago. Is that ok? I haven't decorated it yet, I plan to do so in the morning. Tips please!
If its bulging........did you put a dam around edge? If not you need to fix the bulging problem...and the fridge is fine...
I did put a dam, so I don't understand why its bulging. I looked at it in the fridge thismorning and it kinda looks like the bulge went mostly away.
thats great....hope it covers nice for you now
It's probably bulging because there's air betwen the layers that is getting pushed out by the weight of the fondant. If I have time, I fill the cake then set it in the fridge for at least an hour or two. THis way, if the cake decides to bulge, I can fix it before I ice the cake. I chill the iced cake and THEN I put on fondant. There's no good way I've found to make it look perfet if you get a bulge after I've applied the fondant.
If I'm in a hurry, I fill then lay a piece of wax paper on top of the tier and set one of my heavier cookbooks on top. I leave it for 15 minutes or so to make sure the excess air gets pushed out, then ice, chill, and fondant. HTH!
I just had this dilemma last week. I used a BC/fresh strawberry filling, then iced in BC and covered in fondant. I was told to put it in the fridge, and I did so with no problems. The cake was allowed to come back to room temp before it was served, and I was told that it was delicious, and no sweating problems.
The cake is covered in white fondant, and has brown and baby blue decorations. If I put it back in the fridge will the colors bleed?
I always refrigerate my cakes. So far I have not had any bleeding problems. You should be just fine!
It should not bleed.....what are decorations made from? IF FONDANT THEY SHOULD NOT BLEED
If you have a home frig you'll be fine. Commercial refrigerators are wet.
