I won’t say I had an actual disaster but the cake didn’t turn out as expected. I made a cake for my son & daughter in law’s baby shower — it was a vanilla cake with a Nutella buttercream filling – cake was fondant covered. I did use a simple syrup to moisten cake but not very much. – only a little bit. When I got to the venue the a/c was broken and the cake sweated until we eventually found a fan. It dried, but when I cut it, the cake was very wet – the taste was great but the texture was too soft. It didn’t look like it should.
Any idea what could have caused this? Heat? Nutella buttercream? I couldn’t believe it – this wasn’t the time for a messed up cake – people seem to like it but I wished I could have done it over – lol!!!
