Hi everyone. I am debating doing a topsy turvy cake. I have seen the instructions here at CC, and I know everyone is raving about them and I am sure they're great, they look really, really intimdating to me. Is it easier and possible to just stack the cakes and then carve them into the shape and at an angle on top and stack to get a close desired effect? Thanks for the help...just trying to find an effective and shorter process, as I am sure most of us are. Thanks for your kind replies and help.

actually, heres a link that gives different views on topsy turvy (aka tilted cakes, etc). Its worth scrolling through it all even if you just pick up one hint. Personally the spanish videos (were the cake is not "hidden" in lower tiers like you mentioned in this post) scares me - I've always done the Bkeith way.

I use the Styrofoam method where every other layer is Styrofoam (2 in) cut at an angle and covered with the fondant. It creates an optical allusion and is the easiest way I have found.
