I will be making my first topsy turvy wedding cake in Sept. I need to no which dowels to use and also do I need to place a dowel down the center of the cake. I am not using fondant it will be iced in buttercream will that hold up?
bubble tea straws are really strong. i usually dowel the whole thing, especially if it's a tricky transport. i've done it with bc as well and its worked just fine. good luck!
You should check out Sharon Zambito's Topsy Turvy DVD. It's fantastic and she gives you some excellent tips on constructing a solid TT cake. Good luck!
Thanks ladies for the information.
