OMG! WHAT DO I DO, CAKE FALLING APART-WEDD TOMMORROW!!! - Page 2

post #16 of 50
Aww, Pink Honey..

Sorry this is happening and I can just feel your stress and sweat!

Ok, here is my take...

The bottom fondand my be too thin. That is a common mistake when the fondant is rolled. If the fondant is too thin, it will TEAR and also pleat when it's draped over the cake ( betcha didnt' know that..lol)

your assessment of the heaviness of the "crown" is on the money...this one, you could've rolled thinly since it was just for decoration. Also, the best thing to do next time you are going to do this gorgeous cake ( man, is it pretty even unasembled!) is to let the bottom layer of fondant set a bit ( harden ) before you cover it with the second one.

When the fondant is still fresh it will pull off the cake like that.

HTH

I'm so sorry this is happening, but the crowns are BEAUTIFUL! Remember that as disappointed as you are, the WORK that you've done so far is gorgeous! This was such a crazy cake to do and you have made it spectacular with a few MINOR glitches. I wish I could wave my magic wand for you, but it's not working at the moment.
Sometimes I wish my hubby were a cookie. Then when he ticked me off I could just bite off his head.

I hope I'm in time1 Fixing this is easy - make a row of beads and edge the top of the crown with them so they look like pearls. Either make them by hand or with a bead maker if you have one. Paint them in some kind of shimmery white lustre dust and your problem is over - hope I made it in time!!

I'm so sorry this happened to you! I just wanted to say: Breath and Relax... you'll make it through. First of all, you can see how beautiful this is all going to look together so don't worry too much. Emma's idea is great and also the cornelli idea is a good one too. If the bride says anything you can say you had to make that executive decision because you wanted it to look picture perfect and you felt that's what the cake needed. The bride will love it. Please keep us posted.

I was going to say the same thing about the beads.... follow the top of the crown all around and maybe put beads (or any other neutral-ish edging). This way the top stays smooth. Or just put a little bit of cornelli on the sides where it is exposed out of the crown (still leaving the top smooth)

I have my fingers crossed for you!!!

well I just keep making it worse!!

i like the bead idea...but they would have to be very big beads. but had this bright idea...see pic!!

I think I'm not even going to discuss this w/the bride and tell her I'm doing the tier over and will deliver it to her tomorrow morning!! If it were me I wouldn't a mistake like that showing on my cake!! It's just unacceptable and very tacky!!

just a VERY EXPENSIVE MISTAKE!!

I agree take a deep breath your cakes are beautiful you can fix this. I agree try the crisco if you have not already done so. I am sorry this was such a mess it does not look that bad. But you might have to do the corneli lace to cover it. Let us know what the outcome is good luck

You could take the fondant off and reroll it don't worry about the buttercream it will go into the fondant. Then reapply the fondant and put your crown back on.
