This is for all those CCers out there who make topsy turvy cakes. I just tried to make a cake that was a tapered vase. I did it upside down and when I flipped it over, it wnet all lopsided and is now looking more like the cat's hat from Dr. Seuss. How do you make it stay right and not keel over? I figure it would be the same method for a topsy turvy cake. PLEASE HELP! This cake was for my best friend who I wanted to suprise with a "hydrangea flower pot" I am thinking that by tomorrow it will be a "broken hydrangea flower pot". I think I'll just try to make one out of the wilton princess pan. But for future reference, and considering I want to learn how to make topsy turvy cake, Please tell me what I did wrong or what I need to do.
I can see the picture. Are there dowels in your cake? That's a LOT of cake, and with the fondant and everything, I am sure it is quite heavy.
Dowels and separating several of the layers with cardboard cake circles will surely prevent your future flower pot cakes from sliding/leaning.
You did a nice job on it though! It's a really pretty flowerpot.
I agree with cake pro... it looks like you don't have any support inside that cake. It WILL fall over at some point.
