Terry's Baking solution: : How to Prevent Air Bubbles in Cakes

Challenge: Beautifully made cake covered with fondant starts swelling up at various points. This happens when air bubbles are trapped in the cake which happens as a result of condensation and the cake “settling.” As the trapped air tries to escape, it goes through the cake filling and is trapped underneath the fondant as it cannot penetrate the fondant covering.



Solution: After crumb coating the cake, make a hole in the middle with a skewer, dowel or lollipop stick and place in the fridge as you will usually do after crumb coating a cake. Air would usually follow the path of least resistance and will gradually escape through the hole in the middle of the cake.
