I made a 10" round rosette cake, 4" high and delivered it to my customer's house. It was buttercream and they were taking it an hour away the next day. It was not refrigerated.
It collapsed in transport in their car. Did this happen because it needed to be refrigerated to firm up? Were the rosettes too heavy to stay properly adhered to the side of the cake?
I feel badly. The customer was not upset at all, but it was such a pretty cake and I wish they could have fully enjoyed it.
Any ideas? I didn't dowel it, maybe that's that's the entire issue...facepalm!!
