PLEASE HELP! I've go t a blow out this morning and the cake has to be delivered. I pushed it back in, but of course starting again. Is it possible to patch it so that it makes delivery and serving this afternoon? Any one tried without completely starting over?

Maybe open it with a knife and remove some butercream?

Thank you so much!

Pushing it back is probably your only option unless you somehow can cover that spot. To prevent these in the future, make a few tiny pin holes (with a pin) in your fondant cake. This will allow air to escape if it's trapped. Since I have been doing this, I never get blow outs, even on iced cakes.

Best wishes -
