Have iced a cake with my regular bc icing a few hours ago, I went to cover it in fondant and see that the bc has not hardened and that has indeed started to 'melt' with milk at the bottom of the cake. I put it in the fridge which hasn't seemed to have helped. Does anyone have any advice? I've thought about scraping it of and using ganache instead. Any help much appreciated.

I think you'd better trust your instincts and scrape the bc off and use ganache instead. It sounds like your bc has too much liquid in it and would not be worth salvaging for this cake. Save it for cakeballs or personal use.

Thanks, that was my instinct but I wanted to be sure.
