If you're referring to the dreaded filling bulge, you need to let your cake settle overnight before covering(or, if you're in a rush you can cover your cake with plastic wrap and put something heavy on top for a few hours and then cover).

Amazing yes cake bulge!! Thought there might be a proper name for it. I like to make all my cakes super fresh usually im up finishing them in the early hours before they are due so for single cakes i could leave in fridge over night but what about wedding cakes? I mean ive only got a small fridge so fitting one in is just do able so i will try the other method might do a test cake before hand would die if i had to hand over a wedding cake with a bulge many thanks.

A cake settles at room temp; not in the fridge

Not necessarily. I bake, cool to room temp, cut & wrap, chill overnight. Cake settles some.

Next day, I fill, stack, & crumb coat. Then, I fridge overnight. Settles a bit more.

I never have the bulge problem.

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!
