What did I do wrong?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Please help me. I tried MMF for the first time this week, but when I delivered the cake, it started "sweating" really bad! What did I do wrong and is there any way to fix this when it happens? How can I keep it from happening again? I'm new to decorating and I honestly don't have a clue! icon_redface.gificon_cry.gif
Thanks!

If the cake was in the freezer/refrigerator the change to a warmer temperature might have caused condensation.

I thought that in Humid climates (northeast Texas) you have to keep the buttercream and MMF refrigerated...I'm kinda confused....

I would keep the cake in an airtight container out of the fridge till delivery. The coolness of the cake probably caused the condensation.

This is what I do with my cakes: Usually cakes are ordered to be delivered/picked up on a Saturday.

Monday OR Tuesday - Baking
Wednesday OR Thursday - Filling and crumb coating
Friday - Decorating (until wee-wee hours)

Saturday: Cake(s) order is ready.

Once they're finished and pictures are taken I put them in boxes and leave them at room temperature SPECIALLY if they've been decorated in different colors to prevent color bleeding disasters (I just forgot this principle and went through this horrible situation). If on the other hand they've been decorated only in white I put the boxes either in the cakes' freezer or the fridge. By the time they're displayed at the reception most condensation is gone.
