Cake Rescue – how to fix a cake fail #3


If a cake still tastes good then often it does not matter what it looks like. But on some occasions, like celebrations, you may want a cake that looks great. Other times you just want to serve something that you’re proud of, so here are a few ways to rescue a cake fail.

This week we are rescuing a piped buttercream else cake fail, a messy ganache cake, incorrect writing on a cake and cracked fondant.


I have been busy over the last year planning, writing and overseeing the photography and layout for my first ever cookbook! There are heaps of my favourite dessert recipes in there with a chapter on pastries, ice-cream, yummy cakes, artistic desserts and of course chocolate desserts. Each chapter has its own intro explaining the food science that you'll need to know for success every time. Booksellers where you can purchase your very own copy:

All recipe quantities in the book are in grams, ounces and cups.

    Dear Ann, I just wanted to thank you for your videos. You inspired me to start experimenting and I just made my first cake not based on an existing recipe (well, it was based on a couple of recipes, but I mixed them together in my own way). It was a bit more stressful, but also more creative and satisfying. Once again – thank you and keep it up! šŸ™‚

    • How the hell is she supposed to make a cake based off of a music genre?

      • Have you not seen the different cakes that Ann makes? It’s entirely possible. And it’s sad to see you so rude when people come here to enjoy the creativity.
