I had my first cake disaster today. I used the Wilton Castle kit with all the towers. It said to attach the towers to the cake board with candy melts so I did. I spent hours and hours on this cake making edible gems etc. etc. Then when I went to move it into the garage fridge, the towers started falling off and I started grabbing for them and dropped the cake. I don't have a business yet, but I was making the cake for a co-worker and she was giving me some money. I called and told her - still gave her the cookies I made at no charge and will do her another cake at no charge - but I could tell she was angry. I have small kids at home (that I ignored all week) and I have to work tomorrow (as a desk clerk at a hospital - not making cakes) so I have no more time to make another. I feel like complete crap and want to give up making cakes. I HATE that castle kit - I should have known that those towers wouldn't stay on with candy melts (I really don't know what I could've used though - i think they would've fallen over no matter what). The towers that were put into the cake fell over too. They said to candy melt a dowel to the bottom of each tower and put it into the cake - did not work. Ahhh!
