K, so I can't find a pic to save my life right now but I know it exists. I haven't seen a whole cake done this way, just one tier. It is round but in the center of the tier it curves in, kind of like an hourglass but not as severe a curve. Sort of like a waist on a woman? I'm doing a cake inspired by the bride's dress and I think it would be perfect for it but I can't figure out how it's done. Anyone know what I'm talking about? Or am I just crazy??? icon_wink.gif

I think you have to carve a cake like that. I've never seen a pan for it.

Are you talking about a cake like this that Christopher Garren made?
