could it be air bubbles? can you poke it with a pin and push the air out with a spatula?  can you post a picture of the problem so we can see whats going on?

The cake needed to settle with a weight. For a cake due Saturday, put it together on Thursday, prepare it for settling and finish it on Friday. There's a long thread on the Cake Decorating Forum titled My Latest Trick that explains it.

Leah is right in saying the cake did not have time to settle. When putting filling in between the layers you need to let the cake settle before putting icing around the sides and top. I started putting a small tile on top of mine as Leah suggested in another thread. It pushes out any air in between the layers. Once it sits for a while with a small tile on top then I am ready to frost. This works for me every time and I do not have a bulge any more as I used to in the past.

Thank you. Thank goodness I got up early and filled the cake and laid two heavy books on top and let it set for several hours and it did great the one that that gave me the most trouble was the second tier. Finally scraped off the icing and started over and it did really good what is crazy though, is it did the bulge immediately!? when I iced it the first and second time that day it was so rainy. But the next day when I iced it it wasn't raining!!! Go figure I'm puzzled
