I have noticed that there are two cake extenders in the recipe section of CC. Is one recipe better than the other? Do you use an extender? What is the purpose of the extender?

I apologize for all of the questions. I have a wedding cake that's a TT due in two weeks. I have tried a scratch pound cake recipe and cake mixes. Both times, the cake fell apart.
Help.....I'm beyond panic.

I have never made a Topsy Turvy cake. I ordered the Sharon Zambito "Totally Topsy Turvy" DVD and it's great. She shows you how to make a Topsy Turvy step by step. I can't wait to make one! icon_wink.gif

Here is Sharon's DVD Preview:

Good luck! icon_biggrin.gif

I haven't ever used an extender.But I believe it is just used to "extend" the amount of batter that a receipe makes. hth

Thanks for all of the replies. It makes sense that it only extends the amount of batter. I have a feeling that these 2 weeks are going to fly by....

Great extender recipe. ....Heavenly spice cake by AZTomcat. Amazing, and seems to hold up well (although I've never carved it).
