Hi everyone. I need help. I made a cake this past weekend and it was pretty hot, well the cake began to melt... ugh.. the colored fondont melted.. i am making a cake for my sons birthday party next week, looks like it's going to be another hot weekend . I would like to know what can I do so the cake does not melt. the party is at 2 so cake should be 4ish.
thank you thank you thank you
for all and any help...
I would keep it in the frig as long as you can... I had the same prob this weekend.. Fla heat and a hot oven is not so good with fondant or BC
Even way up North in New Hampshire we're having the same problem with outdoor cakes. The only thing you can do is keep it cold for as long as possible before cutting.
Ooh i was going to ask a similiar question about SMBC under fondant. I heard that it was good forgetting sharp edges under fondant but once it softens under the fondant will the edges still be sharp? Will it melt so soft that my buttercream runs out of the bottom? I made a ruffle cake this past weekend and by the time we cut it....my ruffles were melting...
if the cake can fit, you can get one of those huge styrofoam coolers from walmart (inexpensive and lightweight). leave it in there with a few ice packs and that should help for a few hours.
