is it my fault the cake collapsed? - Page 4
Cake Central Top Picks
It could be any number of reasons, but I see in the picture where the cake is complete, the bottom tier looks a bit bulgy, so perhaps the cake was a bit soft? Was it hot that day? Did anyone bump the cake? How was it delivered? It looks like your dowels displaced to the right of the cake, which is incidentally where there is a large bulging part on the bottom layer. Did you cut your dowels to exactly the same height?
We would need more information to be able to help you so it doesn't happen again!
p.s. I use SPS on all tiered cakes, it is a no-fail, foolproof way of stacking.
When you say dowel...do you mean just one? tell us how you assembled the cake step by step. This thread is 3 years old
I enlarged it so my old eyes could see better. There are definitely issues in the first pic so I am going with a structural issue. Was this your first wedding cake? Was it your wedding cake. I love the design idea
