PLEASE HELP DESPERATE, I just made my second wedding cake yesterday and may never make one again. She wanted a 16 inch square filled with bavarian cream at the bottomw , I put a 12 inch round cake filled with raspberry filling and a 8 inch sqare cake at the top filled with bavarian filling. I put all cakes on cake boards and put them on a heavier solid board. I put a 1/2 inch dowel down through the middle through the cardboard cake boards and into the solid wood base to help stableize it. I also used wooden dowels that were smaller inside the base cake and the second cake to help support it. It was transported all together in a van and picked up. They had to drive about 45 minutes to get to where it was going and it was humid. They had air on in the van but for some reason the top cake split in 3 or 4 locations and some of the roses fell off. They called me and I had to drive there and try to fix it. I could not fix the top and had to throw it away. I did manage to save the other two layers and repaired it to look better than it did. I don't know what happened. I don't know if it was my fault or theirs. They claim they drove slow and had the air on the whole time. I really don't know because it looked beautiful when it left my house. I may never try making a ready cake again. Please help!!!!!!!!!!!
