OK, this might be a dumb question but how does the cake come out of the pan is the bottom is bigger than the top? or is the pan reversed and then u gotta flip it? I also assume this means you have to bake one tall cake instead of layers...

You bake cakes normally. You torte and fill the layers. You put it in the freezer. And then you carve.

You put a big round board on top, the size you want the top to be.

You flip the cake. Put a smaller round board on top now, and carve down from the small board to the big board.

I'm going to try to find a tutorial for it with pictures.

I would start with smaller layers going up to larger layers, then carve down to the smaller size. Or you can do all the same size layers and then just carve down. HTH icon_smile.gif

Thanks, I knew that was the way to do them, but thought they made a special pan by the original posters question. They make topsy turvy pans so I thought maybe I was missing something.
Thanks for the reply icon_biggrin.gif

You're welcome, blessed7ofus. What are you making? A tapered cake? Or a full topsy?
