hi guys, can anyone help with this i have an order tomorrow and cant get the casing right. when i trim my cake it reduces the size dramatically...any other ways round this? also i dont want just bare sponge showing so what do you cover the sponge with before putting in the candy case??
You can use buttercream and it will hold the candy casing to the cake. Hope this helps!
thanks you so much. any ideas how to stop the caseing from cracking and splitting?
If the candy shell is thick enough it should not crack. I put icing inside the shell first. I went all around the inside with it and then pretty much built my cake layer by layer inside the shell. I put some icing on the sides and bottom and put in a layer of cake, iced that layer and put another layer in, etc...This way it fit pretty snug inside the shell. Of course your cake is going to be a bit smaller than it was originally if you are using a shell/ casing. As far as I know there is no way around that.
