2 tier cake collapsed - Page 3

post #31 of 63
If the cake collapsed then why is there cake and frosting smeared all over the outside of the fondant and cake board???? And why is the top layer completely turned around?? The baby was facing the front of the cake and now it's facing the back. ????

I KNOW!!! I am amazed at the deductions that one can make from the pictures.

On a personal note, and before we assume completely something shady went on, I had a cake collapse and look much the same as the one in the picture, so I'm not going to automatically judge the friend of the woman who made the cake, nor would I judge the cake-maker herself. I have been doing this for quite some time and this past October, we had a heat wave while I was working on the Harry Potter cake as seen in my pics. I know how to support a cake and, believe me, I had plenty of it in there. As I worked on it, I watched the top slide backwards (even though the center support was already in) and topple off onto the table taking much of the bottom half with it as it wanted to simply tear away from that center dowel. I had to start the whole thing over and was relieved to have had a second chance on that one!

It could be a multitude of reasons that it happened including it sliding in the car that transported it (and since the OP didn't transport it we will never know) but I hate to automatically assume the state of the cake was "shady." After all, the OP states she didn't even know about it until it was seen on Facebook and she had to ask her firend what happened...

They were in charge of the bread set out on the table, the flour for the grain offerings, the unleavened wafers, the baking and the mixing, and all measurements of quantity and size.

Also, how exactly did the border just go missing?

someone had tagged her in the pic. There haven't been any comments on the cake yet... I just hate it's posted on there looking like that.

I've had only one cake collapse and it looked an awful lot like the picture. It happened right in front of me so those splits on the bottom are possible without dropping the cake.
It looks like that's the back of the cake to me, but I might be wrong.
As far as the smears on the board, I know if it collapsed in my fridge I'd probably touch it. I'd probably have to poke at it to see what happened.

I'm not saying that there isn't anything shady going on, but after seeing the collapse of my cake first hand, it is possible that it collapsed on it's own.
Not all customers are liars and cheats. This needs to be looked at by every angle.

Oh suuuure... try to convince us to be understanding and nice about it!! J/K! It's true that it could all be completely above board, and seeing as how she didn't contact OP for a refund, I am more tempted to think it's legitimately an unfortunate accident. If she were aggressively seeking a big old refund I would lean more toward "Yah, right!". I don't know why???

I am curious how the top layer got turned around..I may have to ask her.. I didn't notice that in the pic until you guys pointed it out... I was so taken back by how the bottom layer looked.

Ok. I'm also looking at them side by side and the things that caused me to do so:
A- Missing name- the earthquake that would have caused this "collapse" must have been extremely powerful to make the name shift to the other side and the dots on the other side to spin around to this side.
B- The ball border between tiers is all askew. If it had simply fallen, the balls from that section would have ended up on the floor since the cake board is extending beyond the surface it is sitting on. Instead, they are piled up on the cake.
C. Yes, the face on the top. It does seem the baby has learned to roll over.
D. The smears on the cake board.... Simply falling would not cause smears.

When I look at the pic's up close..with my face as close to the screen as i can get it..I think the baby is in the same position because if you look closely at both pic's you can still see the baby's smile in the smashed cake.

To me it also looks like the letters were taken off.

Have you heard from her yet?

i dropped a 2 tiered cake very similar to the one pictured and when I dropped it (I used SPS) the top tier popped up and off the plate and was hanging off the edge and I was able to pick it up and place it back in the center, but the curious thing is that the pearls on the cake jumbled up precisely the way those pearls are jumbled up on the side............I REALLY think this cake was dropped!

the top layer is definitely turned around bc the cirlces on the bottom layer were not around the name only the back part. plus there is another pic I didn't post that shows the name on the front and the baby backwards

Ok so looking at it again, I see what you mean. It does look as if it were dropped and they put the top tier back on the wrong way.
