This cake was my own personal nightmare. It was my first time using Swiss Buttercream, which I liked, but did not have enough of. It used a TON of buttercream. You can tell in the join between the lower and middle tier, it looks funny because I was trying to stretch what buttercream I had left. In my design I did not account for the fact that the top tier would end up the same width as the middle, smooth tier, so I think that looks a little funny. The whole thing did not survive transportation anyway, so it didn't matter in the end. This was my first delivery disaster, but luckily it was a free cake for a good friend's birthday and she didn't mind. And they still ate what was left.
