that's a topsy turvy cake there are really good instructions in the article section on how to construct one of these. I use the directions on here and I've never had a problem with them, they're actually easier to do than they seem!

Ok, is the top of each tier larger than the bottom tier? What size pans do you think they are.

That is such a gorgeous cake to be topped with that gaudy, tacky cake topper. icon_rolleyes.gif People are so weird.

This is kind of a difficult cake to do when you havent ever done a turvy cake before. I recommend lots and lots of practice beforehand.

yes the top IS larger than the bottom.......what I do is bake one layer we'll say 10" round, then I'll bake 2-9" round layers, put the 10" round layer on top of the two 9" layers then put a 10" round cake board on top and an 8" cake board underneath all the cakes. Then take a long serrated knife and follow the cake boards carving at an angle. So the top will be 2" larger than the very bottom, so they are slanted. This is easier to do with the cakes slightly frozen too! I used to just bake a 10",9",and 8" and carve them to match up nicely but doing it with the two cake circles is about 100 times easier and faster!!!!! here are some of the topsy turvy cakes I've done
