  • Notes:

    Rather than using your arm to move the bag, a turntable will allow you to keep your hand and pressure stable as the cake moves. Piping a dam is especially necessary for wet fillings like pudding, pastry cream, jellies, preserves and compotes. If using buttercream as your filling, piping a dam is optional. Fresh fruit can be used in between layers, but the juice of the fruit tends to seep out. If using, serve immediately after assembling.

  • Whatever filling you use, be sure to level it with the top of the dam to create an even layer between cakes.
