My neice saw a picture of Collette Peters crooked cake and fell in love with it. She's asked me to make one for her graduation cake. If someone has made one - could you help with construction? I'm planning on making the cakes (14",10", 6" and a topper) regular but putting crooked foam between the layers to achieve the crooked affect. She wants flowers placed between the layers so I'm going to use floral foam. Would I use dowels for stacking and 1 long one to go through the whole cake to keep it from toppling? Would I have to shave one end of each dowel crooked? Not sure on any of this part. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
here is an article on construction a crooked/whimsy cake:
The article is not there.
or you can go into tutorials > how to's & it's on the 1st page.
Heres a good video about it too.
This shows you how to construct the cake with styrafoam wedges rather then the carved style which in an above tutorial.
