Just wondering if anyone out there would be willing to share a good recipe strong enough to make a topsy-turvy cake. I recently did one and used my regular recipe and had to make the bottom tier twice cause after I cut the angle, it ended up splitting apart. Very frustrating! Thanks.

I use regular cake mix and haven't had a problem Yet but please dont jinks me. You could also add a pound cake mix that will help.

Mix 2 yellow butter cake mixes and 1 pound cake using the recipe on the boxes and then mix the batters together. Bake as you normally would. The cake texture is great for topsy turvy cakes and for carving.

Good luck!

I just use the pound cake recipe from the box and it works out great.

twosweetsister, I don't know if i understood right, you mix the batter of a pound cake and the batter for 2 yellow cake mixes? What recipe do you use for the pound cake? I'm thinking that it might affect the quantity of batter.
