I am trying a topsy turvy cake using surgarshack method. I have the ganache and will apply tommarrow. I was wondering , could I cover with buttercream instead of fondant. I don't really see any reason why not. But I wonder if I should put the top teir (only doning two) on after the ganache has setteled before icing in buttercream. Not sure if I can get it on there without putting my fingers in it. hope this makes since. I use a crusiting buttercream. I know tonado does buttercream topsy turvy, would love to see her method.
I have done two of them in buttercream - not a problem. I iced them before stacking. (Just leave your dowels up an inch or so and set the next tier on them - gravity will take the tier down)
Here are the pics of them:
I stick mine in the deep freezer for about 20 minutes...I have a tendency to teeter a tier when intimidated
