"The best way out is always through."

Thank you. Thankyouverramuuuch.
"In the Wilton course 3 kit (which I did not have), the pillars are meant to go through the cake, with the bottom pieces threaded through so that it looks like it isn't in the cake. I simply bought the wrong pillars, the ones with the square bottom that is meant to sit on the separator plate and not actually go into the cake. When I pushed them into the cake, the square holes were the result."
Ah, so it's Wilton's fault! I knew it! Well, I think I should mention that this was one of Laura's first cakes and she has since improved her cakey skillz a little bit:
Or, ya know. A lot bit.Thanks for being such a good sport, Laura, and for setting the record straight.
