What is with the "No posts exist" thing.

Oh well, I was wondering how people suggest that the customers cut whimsical cakes? Isn't it difficult for them to get the layer out of the hole?

I have never made one (yet). But when I do I would love to know what to tell people.

I've made a couple and didn't really tell them ANYTHING.......and they never said they had any issues cutting them.....I don't put mine very far down into a hole though....I only dig in maybe 3/4 of an inch so the top tier is only about 1/2 inch down in and I think they just cut the top tier and when that was gone they pull out the cake board and start cutting the bottom tier.

I don't cut out a hole anymore. I bought one of Lindy Smith's books and she just stacks them normally; ever since I tried it I've been in love. No more stress about cutting the hole, no more issues with the wall of cake surrounding the hole cracking or sliding.

I just use a little piping gel to glue each tier in place (not too much so it's still easy to take apart and slice) and pound a dowel through the entire stacked cake and into the cake board. I actually forgot to glue the tiers on my last one (the pink DJ cake in my photos) and it was still fine.

I no longer stress about topsy cake orders!
