Tell me about it!! I am baking the middle tier as we speak, I'm going to have to weight it, and then cover it probably around 7ish, giving me about an hour and a half to put humpty dumpty back together again! My only hope is that the bottom tier holds! One corner of the bottom tier acts as if it wants to come apart but I'm going to try and glue it alittle with some buttercream... It is fondant, I've had satin ice crack on me before like this during a delivery... I hate working with satin ice sometimes!! I'm sure the dowels are what did it in, the cake was not as dense as it should have been and the dowels where loose in the cake when I pulled them out!
I was so looking forward to going to bed but it is going to be nothing but trouble here!!
