Hey guys!!

The client asked for a super girly (Cake Boss-esk) cake for her mom's 50th birthday. I was thinking a round for the bottom tier (that matches invite colors) and then 2 whimsically stacked shoe boxes (she loves shoes) for the top tiers. It looks good in my head (I think) but I would do best with a picture or a tutorial. I'm not set on this design so I would love to hear some of your suggestions!! Thanks in advance!

Hi cdent, I found some inspiration pictures for you; I just don't know how to put them all together in a list. Here's the first one.

Super cute! Thanks! I wonder how I could make the shoe boxes look like they are more topsy turvy?

You're welcome.

I've never done a topsy turvey cake before so I really couldn't tell you. I'm thinking that maybe you could make the shoe boxes topsy turvey looking by propping a styrofoam wedge under the tiers. I don't know just a thought; something like this. HTH

Meant to say you could cover the wdges with flowers.

Sorry forgot to say, another idea is to cover the wedges with fondant then make different gumpaste shoes and block the gap on each tier that way. I like this idea better than covering the wedge with flowers because it's shoe boxes. You can still add flowers were you see fit to give it that added feminine touch.

What colors are you doing the cake in?
