That's ok, I'm the type that tells everyone how I messed up anyway! Like when I was first married many zillions of years ago and I didn't have time to get all the dishes done before my mom and a friend came to visit. I put the dishes in the oven so everything would look nice, and then I ended up showing them! Sheesh!

Thank you all!! After crying for 20 minutes and thinking about every other failure of my life, and wondering why my husband was on the golf course, I read the posts and was able to compose myself :) I was able to get the top cake layers on top of the bottoms, held together by the mouse. There was hardly any zabaglione, but it tasted great without it. I sprinkled cocoa powder over and around each one (they were the size of biscuits), fanned a strawberry on top, and put a little sprig of mint at the side, just like the picture. It turned out fine. WHEW!! Thank you all for your caring!
