I was told by an instructor that it is not recomended to use fruit fillings for topsy turvys, only buttercream. Is this true?? Also, what cake mix is dense and sturdy enough for this type of cake...what different flavors of buttercream do people use for this type of cake??? Thanks icon_smile.gif

you shoudl really use a non slippy filling like buttercream , maybe ganache for topsy turvy, someone may have made it with a regular filling, but I wouldn't trust it, especially if you never made one before.

I don't use a mix, but I would imagine that a butter cake/pound cake type mix would do the trick

as far as flavors, whatever your heart desires!

I would say if you don't carve your sides in you might be ok with a thin layer of fruit filling but if you haven't done many TT's you should just stick with buttercream. It's safer. WASC works well for TT's.

Will ganache filling work?
