lopsided, cracked icing, limbs falling off, wow, what a time I had with these two cakes! But, I like them both. They came out great even though it was slow and painful going. The Twilight cake top was lopsided from the get-go and I thought I could fix it-but- no. Really---- no. nonononono. So, scraped all the icing off (and it was already stacked) and began again. As my husband so sweetly put it "a turd is a turd no matter how much icing you put on it". Nice. So- started over and it is quite lovely, not a turd in sight.
