It's definately the Bettercream....it contains moisture, which we all know what happens when fondant gets "wet". Sorry this happened. Your cake is beautiful and I'm sure she'll love it nonetheless.

Yup.. it was the Bettercream for sure. You can't use whipped icings under fondant. Like Vicki said, the moisture makes your fondant turn into a gooey mess. If you want an icing with the texture of bettercream, that holds up under, and won't ruin your fondant try a meringue buttercream like SMBC. icon_smile.gif

I just wanted to say that I agree with everyone else, your cake is still really pretty and I'm sure it's super yummy too ~ It was made with love so she'll love it anyway!

I wish my cakes looked that good when I started!!! I think the wrinkles give it nice effect. I'm sure she won't notice if you don't tell her.

I have to tell you all that I often use filling with wipped cream under fondant, and also as a crumb coat. The trick is to use a very good quality fondant and to let the whipped filling 'breathe' in the fridge for at least 4 hours before covering. I don't know about MMF since I have never tried this.
In fact any kind of filling with cream, cream cheese or mascarpone has to breathe so as not to make the fondant crumble or 'sweat'.
There is no better therapy than baking a cake - well, perhaps eating it.

I'm glad I read this post. I just found Bettercream and really enjoy it.

I have a similar question....Can you fill a fondant covered cake with BetterCream, use a stiff dam and then crumb coat in buttercream? Or will it as a filling still cause that granny skin?
post #25 of 31
I use bettercream as filling all the time with no problem.. Is using it for covering a cake with fondant when it starts to create problems. But as an icng by itself is good. All you have to know is that is a softer icing and it wont crust.

I think this is still a gorgeous cake! This may be a silly question but what is "bettercream" and can you get it in Canada?
post #27 of 31
Bettercream is almost like whipped cream, but is non dairy. Im not from Canada, so maybe someone else can help you with that part.
