Hello my fellow bakers! I see these amazing upside down tier cakes with the large tier on the top the smallest tier on the bottom. Can anyone clue me into how these are created and stacked? And what the support structure is?

I would like to do a small one for my bridal shower so any help would be greatly appreciated! icon_smile.gif

I have never made one before, but I imagine the that support structure is the same as the one that you would use for a regular tiered cake. It wouldnt be any different than the SPS, bubble tea straws, or dowels that you would normally use.

The only thing that I imagine that would be any different would be it might be a little harder to line up your cakes perfectly center.

I used a wooden board with a flange screwed into it and a metal pole down the center to screw into the flange. Did my usual doweling for a tiered cake. Even delivered it put together.

Wow, I love your cake! I wasnt sure if it could be done the usual way, but it would make sense that with the attached dowel as center support and then standard support, that it would work. I just wasnt sure ~

Thank you! thumbs_up.gif

This is an awesome cake, and I'd really love to know how to make it. I understand that it would have to be supported as normal. But what is a flange, and how is it attached to the wooden board? All help is appreciated!

Every time I see a cake like this, I wonder about the outer edge of the cake. If it's just a cake flipped upside down, there's no board on the "top" of the cake (which is now the bottom). What supports that?

If you do put a board there, what keeps it from showing?
