Hi there - I wonder if someone could help me please.

I've had a request from a customer to make a topsy turvy cake (which I have never done before!) and she's asked that one of the tiers be in English fruit cake (spice cake). Can this be done or is it too difficult to carve?

Thanks for any advice you can give icon_smile.gif

Never tried that kind before, but I tried banana once and had a horrible time icon_cry.gif the cake was ripping horribly, I think it was too moist. You might be able to pull it off if the cake was slightly forzen while carving...maybe the others on CC with more experience can help...good luck thumbs_up.gif

There are a ton of tutorials on Topsy turvy and CC. I would freeze the cakes then carve. The only thing I would advise as you are making the cake is to make sure that the fruit and nuts in the cake a chopped up on the small side. Good Luck!!! It will be great! you can do this! Just remember that frosting covers all sins..LOL
