What a save- absolutely fabulous! I would have been crumpled on the floor with George! We would really love to know how you turned this situation around and you deserve a couple of gold stars for pulling this off. Hey, a 1-800 number or website for cake repair and disasters would be great (so would the champagne!) icon_smile.gif PAT

It was certainly a late night, but well worth the effort! Thanks particularly for the progression of photos as you pulled it back together - the cake is absolutely amazing - you didn't let it stop you, and I'm sure your customer was absolutely thrilled!

Congrats!

To fix this?
Well first of all the corner that pulled off was still pretty much intact, so I smeared some icing on the torn side of the cake and pressed the corner into it and stuck a lollipop stick horizontally thru that piece and into the cake. Then I iced over that with more icing. After I scraped off the arms I propped George's fat head icon_mad.gif onto the middle of the cake instead, using the same support I did in the corner (see photo), just like adding a second tier to a cake. Then I used extra cake slices to build up his upper back before piping on the basic body shape. I covered up some smeared areas with butterflys. I wish I had taken a better close-up picture of the patch. Luckily it was in the back of the cake.
Hey, now that I'm looking at this again I didn't even do his feet right! I didn't finish them! I meant to make them look more like feet with toes. EGADS!!! icon_surprised.gif They look totally funky and I didn't even notice until now!!! icon_cry.gif

Your description of the event still have me giggling. As soon as my husband heard a plopping sound he would have gone into "oh OOH were's my wife" mode. LOL. Seriously, great job on the fix and the final product. Where did you get the directions for this design?
