I'm planning to make a topsy turvy cake using the styrofoam wedges between each tier for my daughter's birthday.
Cake will be baked and assembled at the same place the party will be held. Since there is no transportation involved, would I still need a center dowel?
I was hoping a center dowel wasn't necessary, but wanted some opinions.
I have never used a center dowel! I've made cakes as high as 4 tiers but have been able to assemble all of them on site. Maybe I've been lucky??? I've only made a topsy turvy cake 3 tiers high though but still didn't use a center dowel and no issues.
I have made several topsy's using the wedges and I always put in a center dowel. I highly recommend doing so with this style of cake
Well, this one will just be three tiers and it's for my daughters birthday. I just wanted to try this style, but don't want it to slide apart before the party - lol! Still not sure what to do!
Yes, put the center dowel in.
when in doubt, dowel it out! LOL
LOL - looks like the dowels have it! Thanks so much!
I think the topsy turvy cake is a great specialty cake. But can someone provide me with tips on the best way to cut and serve it. Tips on cutting and serving any cake with stacked construction would be most helpful.
