OMG I cant believe I just did that!!

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 

I just sent a cake out the door and realized I forgot to put dowels in it!! It's a 2 tier square 8 & 6 inch covered in fondant! I'm a nervous wreak now! Do I call them and tell them or do I wait and see? It was for my old next door neighbor who I group up calling my other mom but she can be a hugeee drama queen at times. I can't believe I forgot to put dowels in! I never do that. icon_eek.gificon_redface.gif

Considering that it's fairly cold, it might hold together ok. Was the cake cold?

its a yellow cake (both tiers) Toba Garretts recipe. I don't even know how I managed that. I was rushing to get the order done because the customer was late with her payment but since it was my old neighbor I decided not to turn her away. I remember sitting the top tier on top of the bottom to see if I wanted then lined perfect or offset. Omg! It was cold but its still going to sit out at the party. I even center doweled it so I don't see how I could forget the bottom tiers dowels smh.

I bet it will be just fine, bet you anything. Especially if sits still and no one moves it around. Honestly, I don't even think I need to support 4" tiers sometimes, but how stupid would I look if something happened...lol.

lmaooo cause I have a feeling we both know things are about to "blow up". Guess I'll have to wait until this evening to give you all a report.

I will keep my fingers crossed that nothing will happen to the cake!!! I know you will be on pins and needles waiting for a phone call. Hopefully, you will only receive a phone call telling you how good the cake was!!! Holding my breath!!!!!Good luck/MARY

It should be fine, don't worry about it. If it was four tiers that's one thing but for two no biggie.

Speaking of drama queens, y'all... you're going to give this poor woman an unnecessary heart attack - hahaha! I've done several 6" & 8" two-tiers without doweling them and nothing has happened. They were for family functions, so I was around to see what went on, and what went on was...nothing. They stayed together just fine. My only disaster in this area was a one-tier that simply decided to fall apart on its way to the festivities - still don't know why. It was also for a family function and everyone was very understanding (and hungry, too, probably), so it all got eaten anyway. Take a chill pill, everybody - it's going to be all right!
