Hello to all and Happy Holidays!!!
Does anyone know or has had the experience of assembling the upside down cake? I have seen it but I'm not quite sure what to use so that it will not turn into a disaster!! Hopefully you'll be able to see the piture I attached. It's a cake that was done by a CC member but I'm not sure if she will be able to send me the instructions as to how she did this beauty.
Thank you all!!
exactly like you do a regular cake -- except upside down.
all the doweling/sps supports, cakeboards, etc. just like normal except starting w/ smallest tier first and then going up in size.
the tricks -- I'd use a center dowel that is secured to the baseboard and then lower tiers over it.
AND I'd use boards/plates that had been premeasured to locate exact center and then that hole made in advance to be sure to get the cakes exactly balanced as possible
and I'd put the internal support as close to the edge of each lower tier to get the greatest support area possible.

I salute you!
Wow!!! Great instructions Doug!!!! Thanks a bunch!
Thank you Doug. I'm going to try your instructions as soon as I'm done with this weekend's weddings.
