Everyone keeps using the term, "blow out". What exactly does that mean? Is that something with fondant covered cakes?

I've baked cakes on Wednesday, that were eaten on Sunday. (Customer's choice because she was traveling) She said it tasted great! Not something I would recommend, but just funny that people freak over a cake that was baked more than 24 hours before their party.

I have had holes/cracks in "rushed" cakes when they settle. One time (and the last time I agreed to a rush job!) I had a beautiful cake sitting on my counter. I was getting ready to load it up and turned it around and there was a BIG bubble about 1/4 of the cake! UGH! I've had one fondant cake get a huge bubble underneath but I don't do fondant cakes very often. Most of mine, 95% are buttercream. [/quote]

The three day rule sounds great! While baking (being a hobby of mine and not my profession), I always try to rush everything and do it in the same day. Thanks for the tip!

Wow you guys must work fast. I did my first 3 tiered cake this week. It needed to be done by Friday evening. I baked 3 cakes tues, and 3 cakes wed. I crumb coated all wednesday night. Thursday and Friday I spent decorating them. I mean that is ALOT of work when your mixing, baking, and making a mess at the same time and trying to clean, make fondant and icing! Whew! lol. I can't work fast or rush, I get anxious and lose focus and get frustrated at the same time. lol.
