I am new here and this is my first time posting. I've been making cakes for less than a year and I've learned a lot from so many of you. Thanks a million! One thing I haven't seen addressed, and I apologize if it has been, but I could not find it anywhere...

How do I keep my fondant from bulging out in the middle where the buttercream layer is? I've tried making my BC stiffer, but it still happens. What am I doing or not doing to cause this. TIA!

I tried to post the photo but am not sure if it's going to come up. It may come up twice. Sorry.

How do I add a photo? Does it have to be online? I tried adding an attachment but it didn't work...

You need to let the cake settle several hours after filling an before frosting (over night is best). Then frost and let it crust well before adding fondant.
