I hope it's OK to add a link to a cake posted here. If not please let me know and I'll take it right down.

Can you tell me how the top layers of this cake were done? I can't figure out how they made the white icing on the blue cakes look all puffy. It looks exactly like in the Dr. Seuss books. Is it just lots of fondant formed like that and then placed on the top or is the cake underneath carved to than shape? Maybe something else that I could never figure out? icon_lol.gif

to me it looks like extra bc was put on the cake and the fondant formed around it to give it the puffed out look. did you try pm-ing the person who posted it?

I don't know how they did it, but I can tell you how I would do it. I'd carve those poofy areas and then if it wasn't poofy enough maybe put two layers of fondant with the top layer a little larger than the bottom. Then I'd smooth it together. I'll be looking to see how they did it too. Such a fabulous cake. I voted for it in the "TOPSY-TURVY CAKE" contest!

I was afraid it was carved that way. I've never done that and don't trust myself to figure it out on a cake for someone else.

Maybe I'll try it next time I make a practice cake.
