Anyone ever tried this?  I have seen it done with a round cake where the ganache is lined up with the cake board underneath.  Do you then attach this to a cake drum for presentation?  I am a visual person and was wondering if anyone has a video or photo tutorial of how to use the upside down method when ganaching a cake, preferably a square one!  Thanks!!

I love this method but am not sure how to do it with a square cake!

You would do it the same way, but using square cake boards. There is actually a lesson on cakemasters.com by Linda Harden of Whimsical bakehouse. But you might find some free youtube videos also.

Thank you Daytl and FlourPots.  I will check out Linda's lesson, and I love the torta couture tutorial.  I will see if I can make it happen. I would have to cut the cake boards to size because I am making a shoe box and will be cutting my 11x15 cake layers to size.  Do I just cut them 1/2" bigger length and height wise? How much bigger are the cake boards vs cake usually?
