I'm trying to make a 6" fondant covered cake. I baked the cake, leveled it while still a little warm, wrapped it in plastic wrap, put it in the freezer. This morning I took it out of the freezer and let it warm up until it was just a little on the cold side. When I went to put the buttercream on the cake just started falling apart. I tried and tried to "cover up" the problem but it just looked like a red hot mess. Also, I tried working with MMF for the first time today and it has a lot of little bubbles in it. Is that normal? I like the flavor but I think I will stick with regular fondant from now on. Jeeeeez! Cake baking is a lot of work.
