Ganache is my only trick. I no longer dam, I no longer let it set...just ganache.




You do this for every flavor? Even a white or nonchocolate type of cake?

So Leah, would you recommend a smaller tile or just leaving it to settle on it's own?

OMG, I am sooo excited to try this tip! I have a few large wedding cakes to do in the next month and I can't wait to try it. Unfortunately the hardware store is closed for the night so I have to wait until morning, but I plan to do a trial run tomorrow! Thanks so much for posting. icon_biggrin.gif

Wow. I ran across this post looking for something else. Nice tip. I never knew of or heard of waiting for your cakes to settle before decorating them. I only knew to wait for the cake to cool, then crumb coat, and decorate. What awesome things you learn by becoming a student of the trade! Thanks LeahS for the post!

I too have cake bulge issues, and have seemed to master it for buttercream covered cakes using this method... Is there a trick to not getting the bulge after you cover the cake with fondant? (and no, my fondant isn't an inch thick icon_wink.gif )

My trick is to put the cake on a rack in a shopping bag tent - this allows the cake to cool without loosing moisture but without squishing the edges when I wrap in glad wrap especially square ones. The bag is not touching the cake but allows the moisture to run down the sides to the bottom so I don't get a soggy cake but its in a moist environment.

Wow...this is a long feed of posts, so if this is a repeat...forgive me... I put my dammed, torted cakes in a food safe plastic beg...suck the air out with a 'dust buster' type vacuum and let them sit for a couple of hours to overnight, depending on the needs of the job...just sayin'

It is so nice to have cake buddies. The bulging has been a problem in my wedding cakes especially when someone wants thick filling. Is it too late todo it today when I must finish the deco today?? Tomorrow morning is a 40 mile delivery. Hope to hear from someone today. It is 9:40AM Thurs. 3/31 Thanks, Grammy1963

The cake needs to settle at least a couple of hours. Longer is better. You can also crumb coat in the thicker bc you use for the dam. That will help Also using cake spackle for the dam work well.

I saw this post last year and ever since I have been using the tiles! It really works great, if I have a smaller cake I use the same 12" tile but make sure I center it and it is level. Tried and true, love it! Thanks Leah!

So glad to've learned this was not a personal issue, LOL!
Thank you all for sharing your experiences and tips. Thank you Leah_s for your prompt reply.
I hope I get a reply concerning the "bulging" of the fondant while applying it to the cakes.
Love this forum'
I made a cake this past week, and would love to share pictures of it, but don't know where to post them on this site?
