How much time would you set to start creating a topsy turvy with lots and lots of decorations that serves about 100? I have to make this cake for the 4th of July and I'm not sure on how soon I should start.

I would give myself a couple of days. One day to bake, one to ice and put together, another to decorate. But then again i do work full time and just do this at night.

So if I start 2 days before do I refrigerate the cake?

I have one for Sunday, it's small ( 6" and 8" ) but I started baking today. I'll ice and stack tomorrow. I'm putting the cakes in the fridge until tomorrow. I've already got some of the decorations made, but they had to dry.

It's a princess themed cake and the crown topper hasn't wanted to cooperate. I've made 3 and the first 2 have broken in half. I'm using 50/50 mix.

Good luck with your cake! icon_smile.gif

I have yet to attempt a topsy turvy cake, all though I am itching to attempt one and had no clue that it would take a couple of days. I usually bake one day and then fill, ice, and decorate the next. Thanks for the tips, I really appreciate them! princess.gif

I thought it would take me more than a day because I have a 10, 8, 6 rounds... Happy baking everyone!
