I baked the cakes for the turtle cake last week. Today I thawed them and just finished torting and filling them with the fudge (your recipe), caramel (jodief's recipe-- the only one listed in the gourmet recipes thread), and pecans. I popped them into the fridge to help them set up, and when I went back to check them I had a huge pile of crumbled cake all over my fridge!

I'm starting over, but I don't know what I did wrong! The caramel's really thick, and I'm covering the cakes with ganache so I didn't do a bc dam. Should I have? I also layered like this: caramel topped with pecans on base cake, fudge on opposite layer to be turned on top of caramel/pecans. Was that wrong? Too much goo? Should I do just a layer of caramel w/pecans and then just a layer of fudge w/pecans??
