Have you a sketch of what you are looking at? Is it the slanted layers stacked one on top of each other? Or is it the cake itself that is on an angled board with a 'wedge' between each layer.
Whichever it is, there are great tutorials on this website.....check them out.

I am not using wedges for the cake. I will be cutting it on a slant

Hey Paula.. PM me your e-mail and I'll send you my instructions. I took pictures of a lot of the steps (not all because I got all excited and ahead of myself.. LOL) and I'll send it all over to you. icon_smile.gif It's how I made the TT in my pictures.

My advive would be to use a firm cake and not carve the sides in too far.

Have fun!
