Hi all, I am planning on making a Dora theme TT next week for my DD 4th b-day and I was wondering if anyone has made a TT covered in BC instead of fondant and theresult.TIA
BC works like a charm for Topsy Turvy cakes. All of mine are done in IMBC. I find it much easier to create the sharper edges and angles. Trying to cover those in fondant scares me.
I made one week before last - my first Topsy Turvy -- and I was really pleased with it. It's the Mardi Gras cake in my photos.
I just iced and decorated both tiers separately, then placed the top one on the bottom one, added the border and drove a pointed stake through both into the base.
Here's a great video:
I've only made one topsy turvey cake, and at first I covered it in buttercream, but it fell, so then I covered the part I salvaged in fondant. There are pictures in my photos. I thought the buttercream was much more difficult than the fondant, but my buttercream skills are a little weak.
I have done 2 of them so far, both in buttercream and no problems at all. It works just fine!
Thanks everyone your cakes are great! I am doing fondant decorations but really want to do this in buttercream. So now I feel better about it and if itdoesn't look good then I'll just go w/ fondant. Once again thanks
