UGH!!! What happened to my cake?

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
Hi all!

I did this cake last night at class. about 2 hours after I finished it it had a bubble on the left side of the flowers on the side of the cake. This morning the flowers were coming off (flower, buttercream, Fondant and all!)

Anyone know what could've gone wrong?

I used buttercream frosting. The flowers are made from royal icing

I frosted the cake and put it in the fridge while I rolled out the fondant.[/img]

Sorry I can't help with your problem but I just wanted to let you know I think your cake is lovely. I'm sure you will get an answer from several of the pros.

Did you let it come to room temperature before applying the fondant? Sometimes that causes bubbles.

Thank you all!

Meegh, No. I did not let the cake come to room temperature before I put the fondant....bummer.

Also, I had my cake in a cake carrier all night. I just read another thread that said that that was not a good idea.

Live & learn I guess.

Well, the cake carrier is partly to blame. Leaving it closed up in there can cause it to "sweat" alittle. At the very least it can keep it from getting cool air circulation. Fondant and gum paste are very picky when it comes to heat and moisture. Leaving the cake inside a plastic container, can contribute to both happening. Especially this time of the year, and depending on what area of the country you are in.

I am in the Pacific Northwest, we leave nothing like this out of the fridge, or in a place where it is likely to be negatively affected. Especially if it's going out to a client. If the heat doesn't get it, the humidity will. :/

From looking at your cake, and it's lovely by the way, you got a little of both. Sad, but a worthwhile lesson! Now you know! icon_smile.gif

Caking is a lesson of trial and error and eventually success! icon_wink.gif

LOL....yeah there is something funky happening to this site. I think it has to do with the many ads that are now embedded in it. Especially the animated ones...just sayin.....

You crack me up Sharon!
