I have an order for 9-19-09 for my 1st topsy turvy. It will be a 10", 8", nad 6". BC with a fondant "tablecloth" (fondant just on top and about 1-2 inches down the sides) on each layer. I need any and all advice on how to achieve this without my cake actually going topsy-turvy to the floor! Thanks in advance for all advice and help!

candoo...........I am pretty certain seriouscakes has a really good video on youtube showing how to do a topsy turvy using the cut-out method, which I swear by! If you go to youtube and search seriouscakes you will find it. This method creates a very stable topsy turvy without having to use dowels! thumbs_up.gif

There's a tutorial on the articles page. Step-by-step with photos. It's really great.

Candoo..........scratch Seriouscakes being the author of the Topsy Turvy video! Xstitcher is correct and if you click on the link she provided it will take you directly to the TT video I was referring to. Janellscakes is the topsy turvy video person, not Seriouscakes. Sorry about that!

However, speaking of Seriouscakes, she has some really good tuts on Youtube that may help you making buttercream flowers. She is very easy to follow and shows things very well. icon_smile.gif

Thank you Xstitcher for catching my error!!! thumbs_up.gif
