Mickey Mouse Clubhouse cake. Topper made with Styrofoam and Rice Krispy Treats.
Two issues with this cake.
1. Pulled cake out of frig to put final touches on cake and I see a bubble in the buttercream. (popped it with a straight pin).
Then I have to transport it 45 minutes away. I Doweled it and thought it would be ok but upon arrival it had a "seam" between the bottom and middle layer. It was a half sheet, 3 layers, 5 to 6 inches tall. Have to do a upright boom box this week and don't want the same problem any suggestions how to avoid this again? Disappointed.

Thanks in advance.

Regarding the seam between layers, did you let the cake settle after filling it? I used to have that same problem, but then I started filling the cake, letting it settle for several hours (usually overnight), and then I would trim off any bulging at the seams before I covered the cake in fondant. I haven't had any problems with bulging or seams since

A 5" to 6" cake is pretty tall, and I wouldn't go any taller without having a cake board between layers for support.
