Let me start off by saying this was totally my own fault! I was rushing and didn't let the buttercream between the tiers set up before I tried to transport the cake to the Fair. It was the fourth turn that did it. The entire cake slid off the base and the top tier fell off completely and landed on top of my jacket laying on the seat next to the cake. Miraculously none of the gumpaste roses on the top broke. This was a dummy cake and I never would have been so casual in transporting it if it had been a real cake or for a real event. The lesson I learned: Don't rush!!

Oh adree313, thanks for the compliment. Someone was walking in ahead of me with their cake I thought about turning around and putting my cake right back in the car! All I see are the flaws in mine, but thanks to cakecentral.com I know I'm my own worst critic, we are all critical of our own work!
