Thanks y'all. I ended up doing the cake with a very thin layer and it held (thankfully!).I do also think my dam icing was softer than it should be and could have been thicker/wide. I did a wider dam for the cake I was able to finish.How thick do you do your fruit fillings? I was probably only able to get a 1/8" high (wasn't willing to risk any higher on that attempt since it was already a redo and past midnight!!).
I've tried twice now to fill a cake with strawberry curd, both times the curd leaked out and layers shifted and the cake was a disaster -- what is the trick? I'm using a buttercream dam, but the filling pushes the dam right out when I try to frost the top of the cake. The first time even I knew I had too much filling in the layers, but the second time I thought the amount seemed reasonable. How thick should the filling be? Should it be very thin, like you would butter...
Thank you for posting that video and the info about what to use! I ordered these last week and was about to pull my hair out yesterday. I will try the gumpaste mix, and watch the video a couple times. Darn, she makes it look so easy!Has anyone had any better success since first posting?
