I made my first topsy turvy cake today and it fell apart. I don't know what I did wrong but I am sad about it! I was so excited about making it. I was doing finishing touches when the top half fell over icon_sad.gif . Oh well. I will definitly try it again. I am just glad it wasn't for a paying customer.

Someone just came to visit me and I ended up buying a set of the pans to make the cake topsy turvey...I'm about to use them right now and see if it's worth my hard earned bucks...lol

I like the tutorial on cc and was going to use that for my cake..but, I got suckered into buying the pans..( I'm easy what can I say..lol)

let's see if I can do this!! or will be here posting my sad, sad attempt! lol

Hmmm, do you mean the flat Wilton topsy-turvy cake pans? I was trying to make the 3-D versions with the optical illusion of layers of cake tettering upon each other. If there are special pans for that I would be thrilled...

BUMP.

RisqueBusiness Posted 15 Dec 2006 , 11:01pm

sorry..busy baking in the pans. I pmed Heath and Jackie and will send them my review on the pans.

If they ARE worth it, they just may make an appearance on Cake Central.

I will be very honest in my review..

they are taking a bit long to bake!! lol

nefgaby Posted 16 Dec 2006 , 1:08am

Can't wait to see the result!!! Please share pics when you are done! Thanks Risque!

sarzoemom Posted 16 Dec 2006 , 2:56am

I can't wait to hear too! I tried making one and had a disaster too. I tried using the tutorial and where I cut the cake to set the other in part of the cake in just started falling off when I put it together. I just cried!

sarzoemom Posted 16 Dec 2006 , 2:23pm

So, how did the pans work? I am dying to know! Also, where did you getthem? I googled them and can't find them.

RisqueBusiness Posted 16 Dec 2006 , 2:34pm

I made them, they are cooling....I will go in today or tomorrow and finish them.

They took a long time to bake, but then again I put 2 in at a time.

Since I am reviewing them for Jackie and Heath I won't say anymore...except that they DID come out nicely from the pan and after I baked them I filled the pans with water to see if they would leak and they did not.

These pans are NOT needed to make the slanted cakes as you can cut from small to back and then slap them back together with some buttercream...

But...baking in these pans eliminates all that cake handling, therefore, smaller margin for error.

The pans are not super thick, they are more like the Wilton Character cake pans...I think aluminum so you'd have to make sure that you took extra care with them..

But they did bake up a treat! You spray them well!!

So, I will be going in today and ice them...maybe trow some fondant on them and see how I decorate them.

I haven't a clue! lol

nefgaby Posted 16 Dec 2006 , 4:13pm

Wow, can't wait either!!! How awesome! Let us know when you get the green light from Heath and Jackie!!!

mkolmar Posted 16 Dec 2006 , 4:28pm

Hope it goes well, I'm to scared to do one because I'm a big ol' chicken, but the pans would make it less cake handling then, so may be I'd give them a shot.

SweetResults Posted 18 Dec 2006 , 5:38am

I can't wait to hear how these pans work!

RisqueBusiness Posted 18 Dec 2006 , 5:43am

I sprayed them well and put them on cookie sheets and the cakes came out a treat, I have them in the freezer right now...

nglez09 Posted 18 Dec 2006 , 5:43am

Are you going to upload a pic? icon_biggrin.gif

RisqueBusiness Posted 18 Dec 2006 , 5:46am
