This is how the poor thing looked fifteen minutes later after I drove it to the venue, ten minutes from my house:
At the party with the giant "85" for 85 wonderful years for Aiti (Grandma):
I was so disappointed that the icing had slid. This has NEVER happened to me before and it literally took me about five days to get over this. But lessons learned -- I will from now on NEVER icing a cake the day of an event, and I will encourage everyone to go with FONDANT! I really hate buttercream right now -- makes me want to CRY!!!!!!!!
