Ok, so i was making a cake for a first communion party, and i totally over did myself. I read a serving guide wrong and made to big of a cake. The party was for 45 people. I made a two, 16.5 inch oval cakes stacked. Then i made a cross cake on top of that. I put 2 cans of betty crocker filling inbetween the ovals. I put fondant on top of all of this. I finished up and it looked AWESOME. At about 2am I went to bed. The next morning I woke up and the bottom oval buckled under the weight and the top layer slid over. There was a giant bulge in the fondant. It was unfixable. So i then restarted making the cake smaller. It looked a lot better and i was happy with it.
2 bad i didnt have a camera. Shucks
sounds like you will have lots of scraps for cake balls
mmmmmmmmmmm...did somebody say "cakeballs" LOL
did you not have the cross cake on a cakeboard and supports in the oval cake underneath where the cross was? if no, then that's why it buckled.
It's been determined why the cake buckled, sometimes it's the best way to learn--that'll never happen again.
I wanted to chime in on your avatar--that is interesting! Did you make that?? A KA mixer with a Tupperware That's a bowl?? Most unique...
What type of support did you use in the cake?
WHAT ARE CAKEBALLS? LOL
Seriously, yummy - bite size ( or larger if you like) cake - combined with frosting - rolled in balls and covered in a glaze or ganache (I'll cover anything with ganache )
MMM sounds delicious! Those pictures of cakeballs look amazing!
I can't say or type that without laughing!
Have yet to try ganache!
