Absolutely no different than any other cake. The tiers are just tapered (cut at an angle. Like the cake on top was probably an 8", and it was tapered down to 6" at the base. Might be off in my guesstimate, but doesn't change the setup at all.

Must be batmitsfah/barmitsfah cakes, But I thought that was at 13.

Because the tiers are tapered at the bottom it looks like a 10,8 and 6 to me. Taking into account the average tier is 4 inches high.

Make the cakes, fill and stack each tier, then shave cake off around the bottom at an angle. Ice and cover in fondant. Then use proper supports for a three tiered cake and stack them up.

I'm actually doing one of these tapered jobs next week. What I do is cut a piece of 1/2" foamcore to the pan size 2" smaller than the tier I need to carve, and angle the knife to carve around the template. Then I crumbcoat the sides, and pop into fridge before attempting to flip the cake over.

Yeah Lurvely doing it upside down sounds like it would make it so much easier! thumbs_up.gif
