I'm new here & this is my first post.
Did a giant cupcake on the weekend with rose piping of SMBC.
The lady let me know that morning she wasn't going to pick it up till 5pm but I'd just made the buttercream so put it in the fridge.
Cake was also a bit dry (new recipe) so just before I was ready to pipe it I poked some holes in the cake & brushed over a warm lemon sugar syrup to make it more moist.
I took the SMBC out the fridge & left it a bit then re-whipped it. When I was piping on though didn't seem as fluffy or stiff. Looked a bit like condensation. Then it started to drip on to the cake board. So I put in fridge until she picked up but when I took it out it was still dripping. It was embarrassing, never happened to me before. Was it because of the sugar syrup? Was not hot or humid at all. This is only the third time I've made SMBC. Last wkend I made wedding cupcakes with SMBC I piped them on straight away as soon as I made it & they turned put perfect. I hope it was ok, have really been worrying because they were eating it the next day. The SMBC also had white choc ganache in it for flavour.
If anyone can help me I would really be grateful. Thank you
