So we are celebrating boss' day at the office where I work. I decided I would make the cake, which I never make cakes for work. It turned out okay even though I hate writing on cakes. The cake looked pretty good until I looked at it this morning and noticed a HUGE air bubble had popped up right on top beside the lettering. AND the coloring from the letters ran !! I NEVER get air bubbles; but wouldn't you know, the one cake that I want to be especially perfect would get one. I just want to throw out the cake and hide!!! At this point, the best I can hope for is to cut it before anyone really see it. icon_cry.gificon_cry.gificon_cry.gificon_cry.gificon_cry.gif

I read a previous post were someone had removed an air bubble with a straw. They poked it in the side and carefully sucked out the air. Maybe you could try that?

Agreed, suck the air out of it with the smallest straw you can find or a coffee stir stick. good luck!

I use a coffee stirrer, (which works good) but someone in the thread that CalhounsCakery mentioned, used a needle and syringe, that to me sounds like the best option. icon_biggrin.gif Good Luck!

Mmmm... this is a good idea for sure. Took a mental note on that one.

Of course I had nothing resembling a straw at work so I used a spoon to "lance" the bubble. The air came out and I was able to use the back of the spoon to smooth out the icing. It all worked out but I still wasn't happy with the bleeding letters.

Thanks for your suggestions. I think the coffee stirrer and syringe are great ideas!!
