Cracked Cake

by Nicole

I did a Sesame Street cake the other day, it was a two layer. One was 10" and the other was 7" on top. It was very cute, the 10" had to have red icing on it and the 7" blue, but by the time I finished the cake there where little cracks that started to form on the 10" and the cake was frozen when i iced it. This is not the first time, this has happened, any suggestions?

It is much easier to ice a cake when it is frozen, but you need to be sure it is NOT rock hard frozen, especially in the center. I usually check it with a knife in the middle. It won't take too much time for it to thaw enough in the middle, yet still be dense with moisture on the edges to ice easily. When it is rock hard frozen, it will always crack your icing when it starts to thaw.
