Oh goodness, Luraleigh, I think they do it on purpose, haha! Too bad the cakes can't be set on the lift, haha!
Funny thing was, it was about 45 minutes away. We took a ferry to take a shortcut, the kind of ferry you drive up a ramp too. So it was down a steep hill, then up a ramp, I thought I would have a heart attack, haha! My hubby will not normally carry any cakes, in case he drops them and I kill him, haha. But this one, he carried. He was so nervous.
I had done up bowls with the royal flower and ribbons way ahead of time. But when I inserted an additional bowl in the centre to put the fresh roses in, well the lip of it sat at just the wrong place and made it difficult to remove without breaking the icing flowers. So once it was assembled in "the dry run" ahead of the wedding, I had to leave it like that or I would have damaged the arrangements. Haha, and I had been so careful measuring to make sure it would all work out.
Learned a great lesson from that one though, you always need to allow an extra inch or two of play room to manouever.
It must have weighed a ton because the cakes were 6 inches deep and filled. And it was the hottest day of the year, of course, haha!
Remind me once again why we do this, haha!
