Thanks ladies. I've always had great luck with this recipe. I let it cool down, wrapped in suran wrap, then I sealed it in a ziploc bag which is something I've never done. Guess all the moisture stayed in. Plus it's been rainy and humid here. I ended up tearing the whole thing (after I had torted, filled it and put buttercream - which my buttercream totally dyed the cake GOODNESS!) down as my simple syrup added to the moisture and it was a mess. I placed it out in front of the fan full blast overnight and I'm happy to report it did the trick. I filled and applied the buttercream AGAIN this morning and checked it at lunch and it appears to be crusting although I don't think it was totally aired out but I'm just about out of time. My smash cake did the same thing so I totally took off the buttercream where my icing was running and I have it as well as the other in front of the fan full blast now - fingers crossed. LESSON HAS BEEN LEARNED. From now on I will unwrap and leave out for a day. If it dries out I can always apply a small amount of simple syrup.
