Hi everyone,

I'm attempting my first wedding cake next month. I made a smaller sample cake for the bride to taste, and it turned out great. Vanilla bean cream cake with raspberry white chocolate mousse filling, covered with Vanilla Swiss Meringue Buttercream. It will be three tiers (16x12xicon_cool.gif. It was a little hot in my house after we finished dinner and the tasting, and I noticed that the mousse had started to weep a bit from the base of the cake.

I plan to keep the cake refrigerated aside from the limited time where it will be in the car going to the venue, and we'll crank the AC, but I'm still paranoid.

Is there anything I can do to prevent this? Is there any sort of stabilizer I can add to the mousse to keep it together?

Thanks in advance for helping a newbie!

Post your recipe for the mousse. That is the only way to tell if it is an ingredient or process.

Also how did you frost the cake? Did you make a frosting dam around the mousse?

On my gosh - damming the mousse. That's what I forgot!

I'll post the recipe when I get home, but that probably has a lot to do with it!

Thank you!
