I made a Halo helmet cake for my son's birthday tomorrow. I completed the cake at 1:00 today and now it is cracking! The bottom is 3 layers with 2 burger king straws supporting the top one-layer tier (the brim of the hat). The top tier is on it's own board. I have a wooden dowel going all thru the cake and into the board. If I press the back of the cake towards the front, the cracks disappear. I have pics posted in my pictures (couldn't get a pic to attach). PLEASE HELP!! Is there anyway I can fix this?! Right now I have several small pieces of cardboard shoved under the back of the cake to support it. Thanks!
