Hello Everyone, this is my first post.  A friend has asked me to make a cake for her that has the middle cake tier sitting on it's side.  If anyone can tell me how to do this, I would be very appreciative.  Thanks so much

AThis cake is amazing. I have also wondered how to do this. I think you may have to have a built structure to hold it. But not positive. Would love to hear how as well!

AHere is a tutorial. There is another one on a blog that I can't find right now...I will keep looking. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.372905822831754.1073741838.157748257680846&type=1

Hello!  I have done a similar cake design with Styrofoam wedges.  You may have to alter the design to cover the wedges.  But, it is a lot easier to make that way.

 

Just get a real small dummy and cut it in half on a diagonal, and you may be able to use both wedges.  Or get a small Styrofoam disk at a craft store, cut it in half, glue the 2 pieces together and sand them down to the size disc you need.  Cover the wedges in a coordinating color fondant and make sure you drive a shortened central dowel in each section to the next section as you build it.

 

I learned how in an awesome class from Ron Ben Israel for topsy turvy cakes.  It is a cute cake and you will do fine!  Good luck!

AThank you sassyzan! I could not find a link anywhere! The one you gave was very helpful! Cindym...I am having a hard time picturing what you mean.....do you still build a support structure and use Styrofoam instead if real cake for the tilted tier? I'm just trying to decide which method to go with. Thanks again
