OK so last night we bake all the cakes for the grooms cake and wedding cake. We got our crumb coats on and everything was going great. then we notice our wedding cake it turning into the leaning tower of piza. Originally it was supposed to be stacked with a stair step front and a flush back. we got the idea from another cake on here. So we lift up the bottom layer to try to fix the lean. We added cake we cut off of the grooms cake. So again everything is going great. We finally finish what we could at 2:30 am. This morning we go to finish the cake and wouldnt you know it its leaning again and we have horrible humitidy. It was so bad it was hard to breath. the air was so sticky and just uggggg. So we try and try to get it to crust. we have fans going the air on nothing helps. we ended up taking the cake apart after it had been iced because it was leaning soo badly. We completly changed the design with out asking the bride!!!! OMG right. She said she really didnt want whole flowers only petals well she got both. Amazingly enough everyone loved the cake. They sid they loved the look of the frosting. Whatever!!!!! we think they were just trying to be nice. Although nobody looked and gasped in horror. We were horrified and wanted to ACCIDENTALY(SP) knock it in the floor. lol no more last minute wedding cakes for me. I only got 3 hours of sleep last night.
