What do you think is the main reason why you can see parts of your cake under your buttercream before and after you smooth?


Is the buttercream too thin? Not enough on it? Every now and then I get this problem, and I feel like I put enough on there...and sometimes the buttercream seems too soft when I start to smooth it w/ the viva paper towel..maybe that's why?


any thoughts would be great!

AI would guess that your layer of butter cream isn't thick enough or your cake board is too small.
