Not cool. http://acaketorememberva.blogspot.com/2012/10/top-tier-or-toilet-paper-get-over-it.html?m=1

the passing of the baton here folks, history is being made

 

the six inch cake is officially wiped out as the reigning world's champion toilet paper roll look alike

 

and the four inch cake change is being rolled out across the land and other parts

Why is it that it seems to take the woman of the house to change the roll, you suppose? We have 2 bathrooms on our main floor and one in the basement and I swear that every other time I sit down, I get the last 2 squares, or the empty roll. It is so irritating for weeks at a time, then I will accept it for a while and it will be less irritating, but it is always the case, except for the occasion when I go in and the new roll is sitting on the sink, back of the toilet, or floor!

And I hate icing 4" tiers. I keep pushing them over with the spatula. The only way I can make it work is when I skewer it to a dummy, but it still flops up and down while I ice it.
Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

I think there's a simple answer to all of the above:  "It Depends".  It depends on a lot of things - how large the decorations or flowers are on the sides of your cake - you might needs more or less room.  And I vote for the 6" top tier - like I said, it all depends.............and if you wear Depends, you won't need the toilet paper.  :-)

 

Wait till our Europ counterparts read this, they don't get it.  Sitting here laughing....................................while waiting to deliver a wedding cake....................another birch bark..............................that is one design that just won't die.

Haha! Years ago, for some reason it seamed to be my husband it would happen to, so I would go in after him and have to take the roll off, and turn it around the proper way. That is quite irritating as well! But it must be something special about us icon_wink.gif I try to just embrace it, because if it wasn't me fixing it each time, it would either be backward or all wet and wrinkled from it landing in the sink or getting splattered by the water when others wash up. At least it is protected when I put it on the roller.

Uhoh, are we going to get into a debate about which way is the right way to hang it now? I don't care which way it goes as long as I don't get stuck without any when I need it.
