AI made this tackle box and fish cake for a good friend and was pretty pleased with the end result, however the back corner of the tackle box had some major issues in the fondant department. What happened to my fondant and how do I prevent this sort of thing in the future? [IMG][IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3215162/width/200/height/400[/IMG][/IMG]

Its a really cute cake! I think the cake is heavy and sinking into itself slightly.

AThank you!! Now I can see I should have put supports in the first layer, put second layer on a cake board and then stacked...the weight of the top was just too much...hopefully I will get a chance to make another one with these changes

It happens to the best of us! I had to learn the hard way too..made a birdcage cake once that went very wrong fast! It looked more like the leaning tower of piza than anything else.
