Almost everytime I have made a cake I have had a problem with the filling oozing out when I put the top layer of the cake on. I know to pipe a dam of icing then put your filling in then top with cake but everytime the filling over flows the dam or the dam spills out the side and I end up haveing to take it all off and try again, any tips please!

(So you can compare how much they recommend and you actually used.)
