Every time I use this recipe 1 cup Crisco 2 tsp vanilla 2 lbs powdered sugar 1/2 cup milk I get this bump all the way around where the halfway point is. It just puffs out right there! :( Why is that happening?
Are you piping a dam of frosting on the the edge of the cake, between cake layers to keep your filling from squishing out? that could be the problem and its an easy fix...
I agree, a dam may help reduce this, but I also recommend letting your cake settle after you fill it also. There are a few posts about using a tile on top to help speed up the settling process. I torte and fill, wrap in saran wrap & weight the top, then let it sit at least a few hours or overnight. Then I trim the outside to get rid of any bulges and then crumb coat & ice as usual.
When you fill your cake, go in about a 1/2 inch and pipe a very thick dam, then put in the rest of your filling. Once you put the rest o the cake on top, crumb coat and allow to settle for a few hours.
AI will try that! Thank you so much!
God bless! :)
