Wow, and it didn't sink? That's amazing! The laws of gravity were in your favor that day!!!
I wonder if it depends on how heavy the cake. Was it a box mix or a scratch cake? I have done cake mixes and notice that they are lighter than scractch. My cakes from scratch can get quite heavey.
I went to a friends party were she did her daughter's cake and didn't put dowels on a two tier cake she did, and it had already started sinking into the other.... Then again, her cake was from scratch ..
