Ok, I know this... I´m supposed to dam my cake BEFORE I put the filling in... but I was in such a hurry I totally forgot! :( I´m using a homemade lemon curd and I didn´t put too much between the layers... I would say about 1/8" of filling. I´m covering my cake in SMBC and I´m not going to use fondant... Will I have any problems? I did 2 crumb coats already...
i mean if you've just done crumb coats you can easily dig out just that area and fill it in with icing -- but an eighth of an inch is not much filling either -- i'd guess it might have all sucked into the cake? did you go all the way to the edge with it? if not then the dam is already there -- but just dig it out with a small spatula while whirling it around on a turntable -- no worries
I don't think you'll have a problem with such a small amount of filling. I've only ever had problems, when doing 1/4-1/2 thick filling and no dam and covering in smbc and then fondant. I think it would be the fondant that would give you problems if any. If you don't see any bulging after 2 crumb costs, I'd say you're good to go! Good luck!
Thank you!!!! I delivered the cake yesterday and it held up perfectly!!!! I will NEVER forget to dam again! jajajajajajajajajajajajajajajajajaja The stress was just too much!
