Has anyone ever made a topsy turvy cake with oval layers? Or do you think it would work out OK? I've never made a topsy turvy cake at all and the design would look better with oval layers but I'm having a hard time picturing it. Would the angles be more difficult with ovals? Any advice you have would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Sounds like it would be really neat. I think the oval layers would add to the "turvy". I'd try it if it were me, but maybe not for a cake that someone ordered. If you're just messing around though and have the time to rebake and decorate if it doesn't work out, I'd go for it. good luck!

Thanks, SugarLover2, for your comment. I went ahead and tried the oval layers for the topsy turvy and I guess it turned out OK. I entered it into the Threadcakes contest and it made it to Sunday Sweets on Cakewrecks yesterday! I really can't believe it - I've only made a few cakes and this was my first topsy turvy. I liked your advice and I figured you were right - might as well try it! THANKS!!! (It's the Threadless We Were Tomatoes cake in my photos if you're interested).

Oh my goodness, it came out fabulously! Great job! I was planning to enter that contest. I was going to do the one with the mouse bench pressing the trap and then the one with the sandcastle and the beach ball. But then I saw some of the entries start coming in...and I got intimidated. No way I could win. I still plan to do them just for fun though. It's good practice.
