I'm looking for help getting the cinched look on a tall tier where it tapers from the top and bottom and narrows into a "waist" in the middle. I know that they're carved, but Is there a trick to getting it even all the way around? I'm worried about carving off too much and then being lopsided.
16 views and no ideas? Is it a silly question, or does no one know how to explain the way to do this? I'm feeling dumb here.
I bake and fill a regular, straight sided cake then trip the middle deeply (1" in maybe) with scissors then use the scissors to taper that middle cut to the top and bottom edges.
Taper 2 cake tiers down to the size you want. So for example, taper a 10" cake down to 9" on the bottom. Use a cake pan or cake board for guidance on your size and to ensure you stay straight.
Invert the tiers onto one another, with the 10" being on the very bottom and on the very top.
Hope that helps.
