Take it apart, remove some of the caramel, dam with icing so thick you can roll it into a rope. Make sure the level of caramel is well below the height of the dam. Also check to make sure you cakes are level.

Ha, ha! All night I had to keep backspacing to remove the "n." It made me wonder how often I type, "damn" instead of "dam." lol

Keep an eye on it as it comes to room temperature. The problem may only be temporarily fixed by making it cold.
