Is this the buldge?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
hi all...ive read tons on how to prevent the cake buldge..and most of the time it doesnt happen to me ...but every now and then, even doing all the steps to prevent, it still does happen...is this the cake buldge? and why sometimes?

i bake...cool...level...fill...crumb...and let set overnight.

next day, scrape away the buldge that does appear..and frost...

and then there sometimes seems to be a little indent/buldge going on like in this pic: not enuff frosting? to thin? sometimes it looks okay, and sometimes it drives me nuts!! please help!

thanks all
LL

Not every cake is going to be magazine perfect with no bulges. You said yourself that it doesn't happen most of the time. So I wouldn't sweat it if it happens once in a while. Could be humidity, could be the cake recipe. Do you always use the same recipes for your flavors? Do you notice it happening with some cake flavors but not others? Sometimes if you have a really dense cake it could bulge a little more than a lighter recipe (ie carrot cake vs white cake).
