The cake is way cute, but really top-heavy, and it sounds like it was iced in buttercream. That is just screaming disaster all over the place. If it had been fondant, it MIGHT, with a very big emphasis on MIGHT have made it. Have you done this before in the same way?
Hot glueing dowels to a 4 inch board (or buying a stress free support system) would really be the only way to make that one arrive in semi-upright position.
SO sorry this happened to you- especially since you can't come over and fix it for her. I think it does deserve a slight discount or a certificate for future orders- not much, but a little.

From what I understand the top tipped backandthe bottom tier is now slanted that way. I told her to grab two pieces of computer paper wrap it around the cake and tilt it back up. Realign the dowelsin a more sturdy part of the cake and put the top back on.



I was thinking the same thing about the seat not being level. Especially after reading the damage to the cake.

If she knew this happened before she got out of the neighborhood why didn't she bring it right back? In my opinion once the cake leaves my hands it is theirs and I am no longer respondsible for it. I do always tell them to have a flat place (and point out that car seats slant) ready for the cake.

I don't sell cakes and I'm just getting started at this...but if it tipped over right after she pulled out of your neighborhood why didn't she come right back so that you could try and help fix it????

Once customer picks it up its their responsibility.

Putting it in the back seat with noone holding it, bas idea.
