I felt like crying after making this cake. Everything that could have went wrong, actually did. First the buttercream was acting funky...it was super crusty and weird looking and wouldnt smooth out for the life of me. Also, because I didnt let the cake settle I had all sorts of air bubbles. That's not the worst part; this cake was leaning like the tower of pisa. I'm pretty sure the bubble straws I used were not cut to the exact same height and with the gas bubbles everywhere.....anyway, thank goodness for a good digital camera, it really did me some sort of justice **sigh** I've learned so many do's and dont's with this cake!
