thanks, I will try this. I haven't had much trouble with bulges, I push dow hard on the top with my hands and I usually let the cake sit overnight with the filling to settle it. I also don't put the dam right to the edge of the cake, I go about 1/2 inch in from the edge then fill, top and push down.

Anyway, thanks leahs for the great tip, just wish I had a tile around the house to use now.

P.S. Thanks leahs - this is GREAT tip.

Srsly, you do NOT need a step by step. Do whatever you normally do - torte or not, put filling in as normal. Put some plastic wrap over the cake. Place a ceramic tile on top. wait.

Maybe a silly question, but how do you keep all the filling from squishing out with all that mashing on the cake?

The mashing is gentle, but constant. That's what distributes the filling evenly and squeezes out all the air.

You guys ROCK!
I am super new at this, and have never even pushed down on my cakes. Have always been so gentle with them, now I know the proper way to fix them up :0)
This won't help the 2 cakes on my counter now, but next weekends cakes are going to be bulge free!
post #27 of 178
Interesting. Never heard of such. I crumb coat and let sit over night and not had problems.
post #28 of 178
Nice tip. Maybe a book would work too.
post #29 of 178
Ok I am glad as I continued readding this was all explained! I never new you were supposed to 'squish' your cake!!!! Makes sense though!
Now I don't have any tiles what else could I use? Anything heavy? Like a dictionary or a phone book?Or what about a pan filled with something heavy like flour or sugar so that the weight is uniform? Would any of those work???

Oh and thanks leahs, as usual, for filling me in on the subject, 'Things I Have No Clue About'!!!!

You could purchase a single 12x12 tile at Lowe's or Home Depot and they are not very expensive, depending on the type you purchase.
