Hello, I was needing help on a problem that occures a lot on my cakes. I have, what I call, blow outs! Not the bulging in the middle of the cake where the cake is filled. But the blow outs I am talking about can happen anywhere on my cakes! I let the cake rest overnight, fill and crumb coat the next day. After the crumb coat dries, I start icing and decorating. The cake gets finished and looks wonderful. Then hours later or next morning on delivery day, I have an OMG moment, because I have blow outs. The cake icing is bulging with a huge air pocket. I try to tap the icing back down and I can feel the air under neath. Sometimes I have to scrape the icing off and redo it. Sometimes I can get away with poking a pinhole in. Sometimes there is nothing I can do besides redo it! Anyone ever have this problem? Any and all info is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
