gas bubbles forming under fondant - Page 4

post #46 of 55
It did not make them "ill" It gave them gas. AND they all went back for more! This was a 3 layer cake. I allways use real cream cheese in the butter cream and it was kept chilled and pulled out to come to room temp the morning of the shower which was at 2. I have left that butter cream sitting out overnight and have never had any issue with it EVER. I told her that I think they probably ate to much of it and that it is a very rich cake. Se was not not upset as a matter of fact they were laughing about it.

I am willing to bet that it was not the cake. You did nothing that was not totally safe. Maybe several of them have dairy issues or they had something else to eat that causes gas. I really think you are in the clear here. I have never heard of a cake giving anyone gas unless they have a dairy allergy.

I wasn't there. I have no idea what happened.

Once cream cheese is made into icing it may or may not be a different deal but the health department calls cream cheese a hazardous food.

Cream cheese is 'allowed' out of refrigeration for a total of four hours by the safeguards put out by the health department. Once you get it off the shelf at the store, the timer starts--maybe 30 mins to drive it around in your grocery cart and then drive it home and get it friged. So you got 3 hours 30 minutes left.

I have bad tummy issues. If I get gas I am ill. For people in good health it might be just a nuisance.

I've worked for places that do not frige their cream cheese iced cakes.

K8,
I did not mean to sound like I was upset. I just wanted to ensure that people did not think I gave an entire room of people food poisoning. Like I said, I have left that same icing out all day with absolutely no issues. As a matter of fact I leave the cream cheese out for several hours to come to room temp prior to using it.

Their innards were just so excited about your fabulous cake, it was jumping for joy... hence the gas!

Gas in China is a compliment!

When you let the cake settle, is it filled and torted?

I'd just read this week a post from Cicco Cakes and he puts three small escape holes on his tiered cakes (in addition to his bubble tea straws).  This way, the air has place to escape if needed.  Hope this helps.

Hi Sugarshack....  You say you "fridge nothing".  Question for you... if you don't fridge, how long can you leave a cake out after being frosted/fondant covered?  I sometimes get air bubbles and would like to try not putting something in the fridge at all if I don't have to.

Just a tip. I almost only ever use marshmallow fondant, and I find that fixing a bubble is always easier with it then regular fondant. I doesn't get as hard for me as the regular, so its much easier to pop a double with a pin and smooth it out when needed. Its never gets hard on me to were I cant smooth it out. (so a commercial fondant like fondarific that doesn't set hard like the others would also be easier to fix.)
