I have been asked to make a 3 tier wedding cake for a couple.
6", 9" and 12" square.
They have requested a rainbow layered white mudcake for the bottom tier, red velvet for the middle tier and the top tier will just be fake cake foam.
The cake will be covered in fondant but I am concerned about the bottom tier oozing from the sides and becoming a complete mess. Does anyone have any ideas on what I can do to prevent this?
I will be using dowels in the bottom cake.
Many thanks, Sherylee
I dont know for sure, never work with white mud cake. But I would think that if it's doweld properly, it should be ok. That cake is stunning by the way!
I guess you mean the frosting bulging between the layers??? Be sure you use a stiff buttercream or ganache dam to hold any soft fillings and cover the cake with ganache instead of buttercream. If the fondant top layer is going to be white, as in the picture, I would use white chocolate ganache to cover it. It should be just fine. As Laetia said, proper doweling is necessary for any tiered cake.
