Last night I carved two my my tiers for my first topsy turvy cake. One was the top (4 inches on top, 3 inches on bottom) and the other the middle (6 inches on top, 5 inches on bottom). I put them both on top of my little freezer in my kitchen. This morning, when I came downstairs, my top tier was gone! I actually thought for a slight moment that someone came in during the night and stole it! But then dread hit me...... I looked behind the freezer, and lo and behold, there it was. =( It was wrapped well, and so the cake was protected, but it was deformed. I re-carved it a little, but I think I'll have to rely on the frosting to make it look better. If it doesn't work, I'll need to re-do them. =( The cake is for a church activity I'm going to Friday night. I'm donating it, and expecting to have only the bottom tier eaten. (Only about 6 couples going to be there.) But now I know. Tall and skinny needs protection while settling or else it might decide to go sky diving.
