Hello! I have a question about "fixing" cakes. It may seem like a silly question, but these days I'm obsessing over weird things:)
After I took a cake out of the oven, I ran a knife around the edges to loosen it. Later when I took it out of the pan, I saw that my knife must have pushed at part of the cake so it looks like there is a small chunk out of the side. I have extra cake so I can patch it up, but I'm just afraid that when the client cuts into it, it might look funny. Its a 6" party cake, not a wedding cake and will be frosted with buttercream.
What do you think-- is it really bad to patch it up for a paying client? Or would you bake a new cake?
Ohheaves STOP!! Have you ever watched any of the cake shows on tv?? It’s done all the time:) the other day I was watching “ crazy cakes” & they used A ton of cake “mash” crumbs mixed w/iicing :( I thought “ I sure would NOT want to get any of that!”
I am pretty sure the client would never even notice. Perfectly exceptable to patch cakes.
Thanks, guys! I feel better about patching now (it's what I wanted to hear lol!). Good to know its a common practice.
Two thumbs up, Baker Beach!
