This is a picture of my cake that melted the other week... so bummed!

I think we figured it was a combination of freezing the crusting buttercream and very humid/damp weather.

It was such a bummer... I did the buttercream using the upside down method and it had worked so great!

I'll be trying this same cake again for this weekend.

I am so sorry it melted on you. But I can clearly see how beautiful it was.

So sorry, but it looked like a beautiful cake. What's the upside down method?

Aww! The design of the cake is really neat though! Good luck with your next one!

Thanks for the kind words!

The BC was the Crusting BC II recipe here on CC.

The upside down icing technique is here in the CC artiles -

It was really pretty easy to do. I even forgot to dip in hot water and it still worked great!
