Ok, topsy turvy pro's... I've made a few topsy turvy cakes before and have improved with practice. I've tried it with 10', and 6' which in my opinion looks the best, also with an 8', and 6' which didn't look AS good to me. Now the request I have is to make one smaller so my question is: What is the smallest size pans you have used to make a topsy turvy? I was thinking of using an 8' with a 5'. Would that look ok? The request for the smaller topsy turvy is to serve 2 things: smaller party, and less cost. So PLEASE, any help, suggestions, or advice you can give me would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks so much cake friends!

I've used an 8 and a 4 before. just be sure to use a denser cake for carving it.
i find if the pan sizes are too close together, the effect isn't quite as nice.

I think that's why the 8' and 6' didn't look quite as good to me. Thank you!

It depends how it is made. A 2 inch diffence in pans will look good if it is tapered.
