AAAKKKK!!!!! I have NEVER had this happen to me. It was snowing, and I did have trouble stopping very well, but it still shouldn't have fallen over! I blame it on the fruit filling (I despise fruit filling, mostly because I'm not really a fan of many fruits!). Luckily the shower isn't actually until this morning. Another first, Usually I deliver the cake right before the event. But I don't usually deliver cake's on Sunday's so that' why I was delivering Saturday night. Good thing I did because I now have time to fix it.
Actually there was no fixing this cake. The top have was still in decent condition, but the bottom completely cracked and broke. SO I had to start from scratch. I asked the client if I could use ganache instead of the fruit. Once ganache dries it act's like a glue, It's really my favorite frosting to work with. The only negative is that it's not very thick, so frosting lovers aren't satisfied. But with this cake, being a star tip and not fondant there is still plenty of icing. I not only used ganache to 'glue' the layers together, but also around the entire outside to hold it better. Then a thin layer of butter cream and then the lines and the star's. I actually thought this cake was much better than the first one, but no one else can probably see the little details that bugged me about the first one. Anyway it's done and now I just have to get through the new snow without being late or getting stuck!
