I am trying to find some tips for a cake I am doing..

The bride wants it reverse stacked...I am using a 6,8,10...She wants the 6 in on the bottom and the 10 on the top.

any suggestions on how I could make this more sturdy?

I've not done this, but someone here has....I would do a search in the galleries and pm the creator for info.

Here's one...I'd pm her and ask how she did it!

Wilton had a reverse stacked cake in there 2000 yearbook... it used the "Tall Tier Cake Stand" and just reversed the order it was put together. It looks like that's what ltaehschneider did with her Sweet 16 Upside Down cake too.

Thanks for this thread! I have the Tall Tier stand and have not yet had a chance to use it. I love the idea of using it "upside down" icon_smile.gif and now I can't wait for the opportunity!

I would use a weighted base (heavvy!) to keep that sucker from falling over and of course you would have to stack on site, wouldn't want to travel with that thing! Maybe you could do a dummy cake as the top tier as well? I'd definitely PM the creator, that's a beautiful cake.

Good luck, tell us how it goes icon_smile.gif

I found out the picture in a web site for brides, but these days I realized it is in this book, maybe they explain how to do it.
