What kind of filling did you use? Did you make sure that the filling did not go above your dam?

If it is a fruit filling, I always put a thin layer of bc beneath the filling to prevent slippage. Hope this helps!

Give the top a gentle push down so that the cake and the dam have made a connection. That should help.
