Oh, I'm so disappointed! I just finished a Baptism cake that took about 6 hours to do. I thought I did everything right, but now there's a large ripple across the side of the cake in the fondant. I'll try to attach a picture, but if I can't, it's the blue one with the teddy bear and a cross on top. I made sure to let them cake settle for 12 hours. I trimmed the sides of the cake after it settled. I didn't flash freeze it (I've never done this because I'm afraid of the cold to room temp thing causing a problems with bubbles under fondant). Maybe that's my problem and I should try the freezer for 10 minutes before covering in fondant. Should it be room temp, then freezer for 10 minutes? I made sure to press down the fondant really well too! This slouching happened even before I stacked the cake (yes I used dowels). I made this cake for a co-worker, I hope she doesn't notice the ripple too much. If anyone has any insight into what I'm doing wrong, pleaase let me know.
