I am making a topsy turvy cake for my Sons birthday this weekend and I am trying to decide if I should do a ganache or buttercream crumb coat for the top two tiers (only the top two tiers are angled and "floating" on pvc). 


I am just thinking about it in terms of stability, the top two cakes are at something close to a 17 degree angle. 


What would you do?

It's all about your support prep.   If the base of your cake lays flat in a cut out doesn't matter the angle it was carved at.
