It didnt turn out as pretty as this one, cause I didn’t use fondant. But still liked it. You can take a peek at it at http://turtlecraftygirl.blogsp…Thanks for sharing your creations.Tania

Elny: I always store my cakes in the refrigerator when using mousse fillings. If not just “outside” away from sun and warm places

It stays in the fridge just until 1 hour before serving. There is a risk that the cake will start sweating. But Im kinda used to make cakes this way, so a little sweating dont scare me.

Depending on how large your cake is. You can minimize the sweating by storing the cake in a card board box and then in the fridge.

Kassandra: I have used a gel paste color from Squires Kitchen called: Wisteria. I just love this color.

Nadia: Pound cakes are too heavy for mousse in my opinion. Alot makes a dam out of stiff BC, I dont use a dam. You can see in this post how I assemble my cakes with mousse: http://www.cakejournal.com/archives/cake-tins

If you are using ganache a good tip is to start with a more liquid ganache and just make a thin (not covering) layer. Then place it in the refrigerator to set and the next layer of ganache is more “thick”.

I love this cake, its perfect. I love the neat slices cut out of it. Can you give some tips on how to fill soft fillings like mousse in a cake? Last time i made a pound cake with mousse filling,and the filling was squishing out duw to weight of the cake? Whats the cause, heavy cake? should i put a dam?in that case its too many flavors, mousse, ganache and bc dam?
I then covered it with ganache but it kept squishing out and getting mixed with ganache?any tips?

I will love to make a cake like this one, how long will a cake with the Italian butter cream and mousse stay out of the fridge? can i make the cake a day before the party and keep it out of the fridge all night? if i make my own fondant will it sweet a lot inside the fridge? and what will happen if the cake sweets in the fridge and how can i fix it?
thanks!! i love your cake is the best i have seen, i have been searching the web a lot!! please help me!!!

Pamela: You cant use cream under the fondant. It needs to have a bc coat first before the fondant. Its right that this fondant that I use sweat very little from being in the fridge. I dont have the recipe for it sorry!

Kristen: Its BC

I always wish I could use whipped fresh cream under fondant. Your fondant and roses didnt sweat in the fridge ?
You mentioned about a new fondant (danish), wonder if you know the recipe ?
Thank you very much for sharing and teaching.

For those of you who have asked about the ribbon/bow, I can tell that I am working on a post on how to do it, so stay tuned. btw its real ribbon, not fondant.

Rossana: A tutorial on how to cover cakes with the IMBC is on my agenda.

Kelly C: This mousse is a quick mix. But I do plan to jump in and make it from scratch very soon. The roses was made on cocktailsticks but I removed those when placing htem on the cake.

Andrea Kopp: The color is squires kitchen: wisteria. This mousse need to be refrigerated until serving, since its made with fresh whipped cream. I will make a post about the mousse soon.

Jenn: This crumb coat is acctually on the “thick” end of the scale. I normally go with less bc. But due to the ribbon it is so important that the side of the cake is very straight. If not the ribbon will not look good on the cake.

Anja: I will see if I can post it.

Chicca: I mostly use buttercream under fondant also in the summer. But that is because I use fillings that needs to be refrigerated. If not using BC I would use a chocolate ganache, but that can also melt in the heat.

Dayanara: I will post the mousse eventually.

Ana: I do keep my cakes in the refrigerator. This is a new fondant (danish) that I use and it dont sweat as much as the old brand I always used to use.

Louise, can you give us the recipe of your strawberry mousse ?
I assume it is safe to leave the cake out of the fridge using this kind of filling, right ?
