Hi all, i have a problem with my buttercream. when i decorate a cake in fondant the buttercream makes a rim around the cake and there is nothing i can do to stop it!! very unsightly. if you could help that would be great thanks x
AIf you're referring to the dreaded filling bulge, you need to let your cake settle overnight before covering(or, if you're in a rush you can cover your cake with plastic wrap and put something heavy on top for a few hours and then cover).
Amazing yes cake bulge!! Thought there might be a proper name for it. I like to make all my cakes super fresh usually im up finishing them in the early hours before they are due so for single cakes i could leave in fridge over night but what about wedding cakes? I mean ive only got a small fridge so fitting one in is just do able so i will try the other method might do a test cake before hand would die if i had to hand over a wedding cake with a bulge many thanks.
AA cake settles at room temp; not in the fridge
