Please help... As much as I try to avoid this, I don't know how to. This line always appears after smoothing my fondant on my cakes. I tried making the fondant thicker or thinner and both get the same results. How can I add fondant on my cakes and have this torte line not show up. I always fill my cakes so I always end up with the same result. Anything anyone could tell me would be so much appreciated.
Thank you .... Marielijah
Is your damn extending out beyond the cake? I always make sure my damn does not exceed the outside of the cake...and I also on do a damn if using a gooey filling. You do not need to damn a buttercream filled cake.
Are you only crumbing the cake, then covering in fondant? I always completely ice my cakes before fondanting (is that a word?)...for 2 reasons...(1) most people peel off the fondant..which allows a "buttercream" slice and (2) to hide my torte line.
Debbie... Yes I am building a dam and it is not extending out beyond the cake. I do a crumb coat only and then I fondant. I will take your suggestion and add another coat of frosting and see what happens. Thank you so much for your reply.
I also use a full coating of BC. I also never have only one layer of filling. I torte my 2 cake layers and put 1/3 of my filling in each division. I've found that I don't get filling bulges that way.
