I really feel for you. I had a similar disaster which I called my caketastrophe. I made my first wedding cake and had to transport it 50 mi. away. Looking back I think it fell as soon as I left the driveway. Upon arriving at the wedding and opening the tailgate I saw my three tier square cake in a heap.
