My 9 year old daughter would like a two tiered TT cake for her 10th birthday......
How do I make it???????........ Is it easier to use fondant or buttercream icing????
This is the tutorial I used for my first (and only so far) topsy turvy. The tutorial is for a three tier, but I only did two tiers. I used bubble tea straws for the support and it worked just fine. This is a really good tutorial.
You can use fondant or buttercream but it would probably be a lot easier with fondant. At least for me anyway
Good luck danni73.
I've made them with both fondant and buttercream and as many as four tiers. I used the same method as in the tutorial previously mentioned. I've made both tapered and straight sides. I think they are easier with fondant just because the tiers are easier to move and stack. If you plan to transport the cake, either use a suport structure like in the tutorial or use cardboard separators and the center dowel method. HTH
