Yah, like someone mentioned you can see the tiny edge of a frog leg, and you can see the edge of what is most likely the fondant name too. You just have to look for it. I didn't see it at first, wasn't using my 'critical' eyes. icon_lol.gif

I think you should just ask her and get it out of the way. If she didn't come looking for a refund I'm sure it was probably a crazy accident that she would own up to.

this is front view of cake. Plus there was a dowel going through the middle of the entire cake I am wondering how the top layer didn't split but bottom did

The baby has learned to roll over? Hahahaha! That made me laugh out loud! icon_biggrin.gif

Oh goodness, that 2nd picture you posted is from your friend? It's soo obvious the top tier is on backwards in that one!

Do you think she is "white lying" by saying the cake collapsed before the shower because she KNEW pics would be taken of it and she didn't want to hurt your feelings about ruining your cake as well as potentially "ruining" the party with a dropped cake? Maybe dropped/crushed=collapsed in her head? icon_twisted.gif

Is she a good enough friend that you can just call her out and ask "why is the top tier on backwards now?" Do you think she would justify the smeared icing in other places as the top tier slid off when the bottom tier collapsed and she tried to "fix it" by putting the top tier back on there?

Or is she showing you the picture in the fridge as if it happened in there, all by itself? Hmmmmm.

Be prepared for awkwardness if you ask her directly! I called a co-worker out on a lie yesterday and she has avoided me completely for 2 days now....and she was the one in the wrong, not me! I just hope your friend would own up to her mistake and not pretend like you were the cause (since that would be easier for her. icon_wink.gif )

For those who are curious as to a side-by-side comparison of the two cakes, front view.

Here you can clearly see the baby is not merely turned over, but spun around. The top tier is clearly rotated.

As to what the OP should/shouldn't do with regards to her friend...it's your friend, hon. You do what feels right. But I hate when people tell me one thing and I know they're wrong.

That cake didn't collapse on its own...someone or something helped it.

Good luck!

I think I would post under the cake photo in facebook "Oh my beautiful cake...looks like it took a tumble and was put back together backwards! How sad! Hope it still tasted yummy!" That lets the friend know you were not fooled and that you had nothing to do with the "tumble".

SIGH...why do people always try to get over? I mean, making the OP feel badly instead of just saying "Ooops dropped the cake but it was still wonderful!"

She finally emailed back and said her husband put the top layer on backwards that he didn't know how it went and she wasn't home when it happened. She said she wanted to turn it back around but was afraid it would make it worse. So I am not sure what really happened. I guess I will leave the matter alone as she doesn't seem too upset over it and I don't want to cause tension between us...whether it truely collapsed on its own or had some help...I am just not sure. Thanks for all the feedback I was just interested if anyone had ever had a similar situation bc I had never had this happen to a cake before.

designsbydawn, I agree that it is probably better to just drop it... um, no pun intended... since it's not like she was calling you and threatening, or even ASKING for anything. Better to let sleeping dogs lie, eh? And it was a really, really cute cake, so, my condolences!

Wow, I love that you actually post a picture, so we can exactly see what you are talking about. I know that there are tons of CC bakers that have had many experiences and can be quite sure of what a cake looks like when it collapses on its own, or when something has happen to it.

I truly believe that; it was an unintentional accident. But needless to say the cake was very cute and you did a very nice job with it.

OK - I was going to say you are all jumping to conclusions, but that's what I'm about to do.

If you look at the side-by-side, you can see the grease stains of the frog and the edge of the cake from the original spot they were in. That whole cake has moved about 1" back from where it was. Also there is some exposed "stuck cake" from where the cake was originally placed on the board.

It is possible that it collapsed and this all happened from trying to fix it. However, it is seeming more suspicious.
