I Totally destroyed my cake!!!

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I dropped it!! Well, it might have actually been better if I dropped it all the way! icon_eek.gif

Ok â deep breath â I was going through the door to put the, nearly finished, cake back in fridge, when my elbow hit the door frame. So, I grab the top tier with both hands, and brought my knee up to brace the bottom. (BAD MOVE!) My knee impacted the board so hard â if it was a soccer ball it would have gone clear up in the air 30 feet! On the side I impacted â the bottom tier buckled, bad! This is (was) a topsy turvy, a perfect topsy turvy!! It was stable and level and I had used the SPS and âglueâ them in place with white chocolate. Now â UGH a mess!!! I have 6 hours to âfixâ this mess and get it up my driveway to the Bridal Shower! OK - getting more tissues!! icon_cry.gificon_cry.gif

I got the cake there and they loved it! icon_smile.gif But oh brother!!! I had to take everything off the top tier and wipe it down with Everclear, (I really needed to drink the Everclear!!!) Somehow when I grabbed the top tier I got ganache on it, but the Everclear took it off. I had just steamed it, so it was âgookyâand the Everclear took care of that also. (Gotta love vodka!! icon_lol.gif ) Made more hearts and re-did that tier. For the side that buckled, I put a big bow on it, but the bow broke, so I made a smaller bow, but the bow didn't dry in time, and sagged, so I made a large flower - like the little flowers, but it didn't dry and sagged also icon_cry.gif ~ so, about the time I was suppose to be there ~ I made a "flower" out of fondant, using the same lace pattern, I used on the hearts, then stuck the smaller part of the larger flower I had made, in the center, it worked, kinda. They loved it anyways, and I learn my lesson - watch where I am going, while carrying a cake!! I should say, this was for a bridal shower for my daughterâs very good friend. It was last minute, because she is in Medical School in Florida and decided to come home for Spring break.

Hi, I feel your pain! I dropped a teapot cake intended for my 88 year old Granny's birthday party. So, I know exactly how you feel...its like dropping your favourite heirloom plate..its your baby!! I didn't have time to make another one..I was right outside the restaurant. Did you get it made in time for the party?????? Talk about stress hey?
