When I've seen these done before, only the bottom three tiers were cake. The top two tiers were dummies. If you look at just the bottom three, you can see how they would be stable, like a regular topsy turvey. The top two are so light, they can be easily supported and balanced.

Doesn't matter if you speak Spanish or not. The poster of the cake is not answering any of the questions!

I saw an episode of Amazing Wedding Cakes where the base was all bent like that.

And Cake Stackers also have a kit.

Interesting Artscallion...I wonder if the top two are styrofoam?

imagenthatnj...which episode of a.w.c was that? I thought I saw them all and would love to check it out!!! I saw the topsy turvy stand you posted but I cant see it curving all the way to one side like that...am I misunderstanding?

I think it was Through the Looking Glass. Merci Beaucoup. They are just not bending it all to one side, because their cake was real cake. I think it's like artscallion says, the top tiers are not cake.

On the other hand, if you watch the videos at Cake Stackers...those cakes never fall. You can flip the cake upside down and they don't fall. I have a few of those pieces and your cake gets "sandwiched" between two metal plates...and now they have a kit, and they do say that your imagination is the limit.

Hey Ladies, I just got in contact with ceci about her topsy turvy cake and she said its hard to explain because there is alot of details. when she makes another one she will take step by step pictures and post them for us, She says she's new to CC and she doesnt know how to find the forums, that she is very busy but to have a little patience with her and she will get it for us.

I read the post. She did not mention which support system was used. I think she used the one from cakestackers.com. You should visit the site and see the videos. Its amazing!!! They have support systems for regular cakes and topsy turvy type too.

Check it out, you will like it!!!

She has another cake very similar to this one in her gallery - it's a wedding cake with flowers on the top tier leaning over
