See, your cake turned out beautiful. You should have seen my first wedding cake
The more you do, the better you get.
As for the bulging,I used to have trouble with bulging because I was taught to put the cake tops together. This is incorrect. Before I found cakecentral, I talked to www.sugarcraft.com
and they advised me to always stack the cakes top down
. Since then, I never had a cake bulge again. It was like a miracle because that was a big problem of mine.
