I am wanting to make a 3 tier topsy turvey cake for my dd's 4th birthday. I have never made one or even seen one in person. I would appreciate any advice you all could offer me. I assumed that a square cake would be easier to work with, but please correct me if I am wrong.... 1 question is how many layers should each tier be?

Thanks in advance for any and all advice. I appreciate it!

That link is what I followed to make my 2 topsy turvey cakes. They turned out pretty good for a TT beginner. I just watched it a few times and then when I began, I watched some, then paused it until I was ready for the next step. Good luck!

Thank u. icon_surprised.gif That video was soooo helpful. I had no idea that you had to carve out a "well" for the upper tier to sit in. That makes alot more sense then what I had in mind, glad I asked first. icon_razz.gif Has anyone ever made one and not covered it in fondant? It seemed like every topsy turvy i have found on youtube is fondant covered. Just wondering. Thanks again for all of the help! Any other tips would be greatly appreciated as well! thumbs_up.gif
