Hi,
I am attempting to make a topsy turvy cake.Normally i use bubble straws to hold together the tiers, since I don't make big cakes. Do you think bubble straw would work for me this time? I know a lot of people here are strong supporters of SPS? (i think this is it) but its not an option right now,since I don't have time to order it. IT would be either bubble straw or the wooden dowels. My instructor at Michael's said that bubble straws would work just fine. The cakes would be 10 inch round and 8 inch round.
Thanks!

I did the tutorial that BKeith has on here, I just used buttercream instead of fondant though.

Yep I have used the bubble straws for my topsy turvy wedding cake in my photo;s.... It was a 3 tiered one and it held up fine. I used regular cake boards too and buttercream with fondant accents.
