To understand this, one must look at a more obvious case: jelly or
marmalade on toast.  This is much more messy, but leads us to the
obvious cause of the problem.  When there is jelly on the toast, it
forms an airfoil.  As toast is never dropped from a point where it's
parallel to the floor, there is air moving over both sides--faster, of
course, over the jellied side.  The faster air movement causes that side
to have a lower air pressure which the toast moves to fill, pushed from
the higher air pressure on the other side.
