Any ideas??? My cousin is going to study abroad in Scotland for a year, and we are having a goodbye party for her. I would like to do a topsy-turvy cake...have been wanting to try one for a while, and she loves that style, so I figure that this is a perfect opportunity!
So, other than the fact that I want to do a topsy-turvy, and probably incorporate plaid somehow, I need ideas!!!!
Thanks! icon_biggrin.gif

I saw the coolest Scottish-themed wedding cake online a while back, but sorry that I don't know who to credit for it. icon_sad.gif

You could turn this into a Topsy Turvy! icon_surprised.gif You could add a topper like the Loch Ness Monster and decor can include little bottles of whisky, bagpipes, thistles, etc icon_lol.gif

Some of the things that come to mind when I think of Scotland/Scots are the following:

Celtic Knot
Saint Andrew's Cross (Scottish Flag)
Lion Rampant Flag
and I had to add:
Walker Shortbread cookies (okay so I'm hungry, lol)

You could use anyone of these or a combination of them for your cake. How about a different tartan for each tierr? Or the flags on different tiers? Or combo of some more elements.

I found this when I googled it and think it could work well for a topsy turvy cake:
this is where I got the above pic from:

I also really like the cake that antonia74 posted with the suggestions.

I just noticed that the link showed up as blocked. If you go to http://www.rainbows u ga (take out the spaces) and go to the Contemporary Wedding Cakes (Gallery Two) you'll see a red and blue tiered tartan/plaid cake which could be incorporated in your topsy turvy cake.
