Is there another way to construct a topsy tervy cake other then the one shown in the articals? I have a 50th birthday cake coming up an I'm nervous/ doubting. I have tried the styrofoam wedges in the past and it wasn't stable enough for me. Can you stack angled cakes without removing the center of each tier? Thanks sorry for all the questions.
I have seen it done with the dowels cut at the different lengths of the angle but I am too much of a scaredy cat to do it like that. If it is all fondant and you are really good at cutting dowels you can do it. Glue the tiers of fondant cakes together and also have the dowel support. I am just way to chicken to do it and deliver it anywhere!
Take a look at the instructions at this link. It's in the articles section. This looks really stable to me.
