I've got my cake chilled and ready to apply fondant. However the top probably has too much frosting on one side and it looks uneven. Is there a way to remove excess even though it is chilled? The icing has butter in it so it's pretty firm after having chilled for 24 hours. I hope someone can help me. Thanks!
You could try and use a sharp knife, heated in boiling water and wiped dry, to cut away some icing. Or, you could add more to even it out.
let it come to room temp & fix it
it doesn't take but a few minutes for the outside to warm up
i mean if you are going to cover it all up with fondant anyway--should be fine
AK8 is spot on!
