Hello,

I love the look of the cakes that are tilted and look like they defy gravity but how is this done. I'm not speaking of the mad hatter/topsy turvy cakes that give the illusion of a tilt. These are really titled and are only supported by a titled cake board and a center dowel rod support system. I've seen these on many cake challenges on the food network. I just can't imagine any ol' sturdy wedding cake recipe holding up tilted at such an extreme angle without cracking and falling into a crumbling disaster.

Is it possible to get a cake to do this and not taste dry and hard as a rock? If so please share it with me thank you!!

I'm also curious on how this is done. I'm wanting to do this for my daughters 20th birthday. I've seen a wedge of styrofoam used under each layer but my question is, how to you decide what angle to cut it? Does anyone have any tips?

Thanks
