I have read over the instructions for a topsy turvy, but I'm more interested in the cakes that have the styrofoam edges in them that are then decorated with flowers and such.

Could someone tell me where to find the "set-up" directions for a cake like that?

I built the foam wedge topsy wedding cake in my photos using a plywood base with a dowel screwed to it from underneath. I slid the first cake down the dowel, cut the top of the first foam wedge to the angle I wanted the second cake to sit at, covered it with fondant, cut a center hole and slid it down the dowel. Cut a center hole in the second cake at the proper angel so that it would sit flat on the wedge, rinse and repeat for all the layers. It was awesome, and because it had a large center dowel the cake was super sturdy. It was four tiers and was driven almost an hour over bumpy state park roads at midnight fully stacked.
