I think this is my third or fourth cake...maybe fifth. Anyway, I had just moved into a new house about 1 block from the ocean. Little did I know that I moved into the most humid friggin house of all time. The top is the before pic the night before, not perfect but OK considering I was working without a smoother. Halfway through the night I realized disaster had struck. I even ripped off the top tier to redo the supports (poly dowels) thinking I had buggered it up very badly...maybe the bottoms weren`t flat enough because I think the one side the dowel tilted.... The cake was MELTING! When we cut into it all the strawberry BC had melted into the cake. I didn`t even complete my design which was to hand paint the tiers with flowers, and plants because the fondant had rippled so much. Also, I tried to make the Rapunzel topper (1st one!) with zero sculpting tools other than a toothpick. Haha, she also softened, and I honestly had no idea what I was doing.
Oh and I stopped the outline on the sun because I didn`t like it. Should`ve just rolled with it but I covered nearly all of it with hair. I did a new Rapunzel cake this year. This cake still niggles at me for the wreck that it was.
