How do you accomplish this look with each tier. I have an order for a topsy turvy but I think this looks so much better. Anyone help!!!!

Here's a how-to CC article on one way to make to make a whimsical, topsy-turvy cake:

If you don't want the tops of the tiers to be angled, don't cut them that way. And you don't need to create the cut-outs either, if you like the look of mw902's cake.

Just came across a post by Sina, where this tutorial is provided:

and I saw a recommendation once to carve the slanted sides with the cake UPSIDE DOWN, using a cake circle the size of desired finished smaller size as a guide.

You people are wonderful. I love this site. Thanks so much for the Sina post. that is the way I'll do it without the slant on the top. Excellent.

I guess I've got one more question....say if a 9 inch two layer cake serves 36(that's a stab in the dark without a chart in front of me) how many servings would you get out of a topsy turvy cake like the one in Sina post if it were 9 inch on the top but only say 6-7 inches on the bottom?
I guess I have another question...how do you cut a cake like that to serve?
