How to repair a broken cake.

There are times when you are decorating a cake and something happens that had never occurred before and you have to come up with an idea to correct the problem right away.That is what happened yesterday when I was decorating a cake in the shape of a large book.  Now I have done book cakes hundreds of times. But never before did I ever break off the edge of the book.  The design is the shape of the book of course so I had to fix it. I could not just ice over it and hope for the best. 
Normally when a corner breaks off a cake I just put some icing on the break and press the piece back into the cake. However I still had to layer this cake for filling and knew that if I did that it would break even more. It was a large piece also so I was concerned that if I did put it back in place with icing it would just fall off again.

I was perplexed to say the least. So I walked away to do something else. I had to make angels and a cross for the cake from candy melts. While I was making the forms it dawned on me!!!! I could use the melting chocolate as glue. I filled a pastry bag and a #7 round tip with some of the melted white chocolate and covered the broken piece of cake and pressed the piece  back in place on the cake. I let the chocolate dry completely before I layered the cake for the filling.
It was a successful fix. I was so excited I just had to share it with my readers. 

So I  have decided that when I am decorating a cake I will keep my 
melting pot on with some candy melts in it in the flavor of the cake, ie: white for vanilla, chocolate melts for chocolate cake; pink for strawberry cake, etc. You get the idea.This way. it is a secure fix and it gives a little extra taste treat to the lucky person that gets served that slice of cake. 

Hint for melting in the microwave
Now if you do not have a melting pot you can put the candy melts in a micro wave safe bowl and melt it when you need it.

Do it slowly. Instead of melting it in on high for one minute at a time, I melt it on the defrost setting one minute at a time. This works great and I never burn the chocolate. I save a lot of chocolate from being destroyed this way. Try this the next time you are working with candy melts.

If melting on the top of the stove you should use a double boiler so you don't burn the chocolate.
