Some wrappers are especially fragile and easy to tear.

  1. Whether it stays down or not partly depends on the paper. Once you stacked them up though, and left alone for a while, the paper will stay down. When I first opened this cake again it was solidly stuck into the hole.

    Shot for sticker application? You truly are living up to the tea addict claims.
