Thank You!

Hi Stephanie

Best way is to use ganache but I think you’re using buttercream?? If you’re using ganache for the crumbcoat leave it to set hard and do another coat as well so the cake is well sealed. White ganache takes longer to set so make it 3: 1 ratio, the chart here may help http://www.cakeflix.com/blog/how-to-ganache-cakes-without-gnashing-your-teeth
Is it possible you’re using a little too much filling? If you are just reduce it slightly so it doesn’t squish out of the sides.
