I have a friend who wants one of these [topsy/turvy] for her wedding cake. I had referred her to a pro. decorater-who has since closed her doors icon_sad.gif

1) I am NOT a pro, probably will never be icon_sad.gif

2) I have NOT created either a wedding cake or t.t.
3) Friend can't really afford to pay a pro now, since her car died.

I have explained all of the three issues above with the bride. She and the groom have tasted the b-day cakes that I do for my girls.

I guess my question is: do I use pound cake? If not what type of cake would I use. I tried a practice cake with a mix, and it fell. The cake just fell apart. I couldn't even carve it. It will now be cake balls icon_wink.gif
Thanks for all replies.
