Attached is a copy of my slanted cake. It's sides are carved inwards and the top is slanted/carved downwards.
Am I correct in my thinking that all I have to do is the same carved cake in a different size smaller or larger to begin building a topsy turvy cake???
For some reason I couldn't attach it????? So the link to my cake in the photo gallery is below:
Sounds right. Looks like you have the tier shape really nice! Make a few of those in varying sizes and stack them up.
If you want the slanted tops to you may want to look at: http://cakecentral.com/articles/6/how-to-make-a-topsy-turvy-whimsical-cake
I was thinking I was on the right track with the exception of the carving in order to place the next tier of cake on top.
I'm going to see if there is a way for me to incorporate the topsy turvy style cake into my Wilton Course #3. I think it should be ok so long as I have the elements from this course on the cake??? We'll see. I have a very nice and knowledgeable instructor who advocates creativity.
In my attempt at a topsy turvy cake does anyone use a level when carving the cake in which to place the next tier???? Sorry, the OCD in me just had to ask.
I level would not be a bad idea, I've thought about using one but I'm lazy and just eyeball it.
Sharon Zambito uses a level in her Totally Topsy Turvy video.
It looks really pretty by the way. Very neat and clean!
Thanks for the compliment LaBellaFlor
