I did this cake just to practice making it. I let all my friends eat it at my Bible study group. It was fun to do.

This is a Wilton Pan, Topsy Turvy Cake.  I added too much icing to the top, so it doesn't really look too topsy turvy though.  haha

This cake was made for my best friend's birthday. It is my first topsy turvy cake and the cookies are homade. The green oose on the top layer is colorflo icing. Everything is edible except for the spider rings on the second layer.

This was SO much easier to do in buttercream! I'll never go back to struggling to cover these tiers in fondant!!

Did the wild colours with Americolor dyes, fondant detailing. Cheshire cat in gumpaste. Pearls in fondant dusted with irridescent powder.

Cake is Pistachio with Passionfruit buttercream, Dark Chocolate with Grand Marnier buttercream & Banana with Coconut buttercream.

This was a 3-layer, 2-tier topsy turvy cake made with a dense chocolate fudge cake and bc icing.  The figurines were toys.  I made it using the instructions posted here.  Thanks BKeith!!

My brother is in Pharmacy school, so I decided to decorate his brithday cake with things related to his life currently.  

The perscription bottle is for him being in pharmacy school and the pink elephant for his fun drinking parties with his pharmacy school friends (related it to Dumbo, but have since heard many other references for pink elephants).  And I made the cake topsy turvy for the whole on pills and drunk effect.

Cake was chocolate with cookies & cream filling and all decorated in fondant.

My son kept asking for a Batman cake, so I thought I'd try a whimsical cake.  It's a mini cake at only 6 1/2 inches tall and iced in BC.  The yellow part of the Batman sign on top is MMF, as are the red smashes and the city.  I used piping gel to outline all the details.

This cake was a prototype from my daughters 6th birthday, the original idea was to have it covered in retro candy but being a fickel five year old she decided to go in another direction, but I was so into the slanted cake I wanted to see if I could pull it off.

I made this with the Wilton's Topsy Turvy pan. It was one of the first cakes I made after I finished my first decorating class.

This cake was a nightmare to make, so many things went wrong with it, and it made me sick with worry because i didnt think it was going to make it to the reception in one piece. Not having the proper boards and dowels like the instructions in CC didnt help. The base cracked, the icing cracked, i had to take it apart twice and reassemble and patch it up!!!
I made the bride and groom a few weeks earlier out of gumpaste, at least I know already that the bride and groom liked those as I sent them a picture.

This is my first attempt at topsy turvy.  As you can tell I did the bottom layer first, (not as pretty as the top)  This was a family event, my husband and Son were supposed to make it all but husband had a mid term so I made the cake, frosting, fondant, sugar sticks and floss and assembled the cake and they did decorations.

This is my daughter's 7th birthday cake.  My 1st attempt at the 'topsy turvy' cake, it was fun, but time consuming.  The few hours before this cake was to be at the party, I had a little mishap wherein one side got too heavy with too little support underneath and decided to cave in on me.  Talk about last minute repairs!!!  This picture was taken after the mishap, though, so all turned out fine.

Topsy Turvy cake.  Bottom 8"-3 layers.  Top 5"-1layer and 6"-2layers.  Made this for my 24th Golden Birthday last week.  Butterfly's color flow wings and royal icing bodies.  Roses BC, Daisies royal icing.  White cake with BC filling and covered with MMF.  This cake had to come together a lot faster than I wanted it too b/c of my schedule the week before and the day of the party.  But once it was all done I was pretty happy with it.  I did break my topper the day of the party and was quite dissapointed =(

First time doing a topsy-turvy...had to travel 2 1/2 hours with it!  Groom wanted color scheme of black, white, silver to match reception.  Had a few "bumps" along the way that I had to fix....have better ideas what to do next time I need to make one.

This is my first topsy-turvy cake.  It is covered in fondant.  The bottom tier is chocolate and the top two layers are yellow butter.  The masks are handmade from fondant and painted with luster dusts.  I'm pretty happy with how it came out.  The birthday girl was really excited about it!

First time client requested a square whimsy cake for an over the hill celebration in black and white. She was very pleased if I do say so myself! : )

Top tier is strawberry, middle chocolate and bottom white cake. I'm not so happy about the overall shape, but it was my first whimsical cake and I only had two days notice (gotta love those last minute orders!)... it was certainly a learning experience. I'm looking forward to doing another one, maybe with a bit more time to plan next time.

This is my first topsy turvy cake!  It is also my first paid cake from someone who I don't know - an actual referral.  I was very nervous - but I love it!  It was so much fun to do.  It is a chocolate cake with chocolate ganache filling and mmf.  The starts and butterflys are painted with pearl dust.  Any advice on how to improve the next one would be welcome.

I did this cake for my Aunt's Best Friends's 40th birthday.  They gave me creative license and this is what I came up with.  It is a 3 layer topsy turvy cake with an extra 16in cake on the side to make the flat part of the island.  

Mediums were buttercreme, fondant, royal icing, chocolate candy sticks, and pretzels.

This was a lot of fun creating.  Thanks for looking.

Our youth minister was leaving for a new career, so I made a cake to show that things are "up in the air".  He created the character--Floyd--that I made in gumpaste for the topper.  Floyd was used to illustrate children's services.  This cake really wanted to topple over--I think only prayers saved it!  The road to the church was under construction and I watched this cake bump up and down for miles!

This was one of my first topsy turvy cakes so my fondant work was not that great, but this is still one of my favorite cakes of all times.  I called it Spongeberry Dorradumpling.  It was for my daughter’s third birthday – she is now about to turn 6…where does the time go.  She couldn't decide between Spongebob, Dora and Strawberry Shortcake or Apple Dumpling. So – I gave them all to her.   The Strawberry Shortcake and Apple Dumpling figurines were mine from 27 years ago.
