I'm making a 2 tiered topsy turvy cake (for the first time) for a friend this weekend. What's the best way to tell her how to disassemble and cut the cake? I don't know how to tell her to lift up the top layer since it fits inside the bottom one. I won't be at the party. Any help or suggestions are appreciated!

I am doing a 3 tier TT this coming weekend also, and I am giving the venue detailed written and pictoral instrcutions, including how the interal cake structure sits, so they know where to begin with disassembling, etc.

I've been searching on the forums for how to cut and serve a topsy turvy cake and haven't had any luck. If anyone has advice on this topic, it would be greatly appreciated. First, how do you determine serving amount, and second, if the teirs are 6"-8" tall at the highest part, would you cut straight down? Do most caterers know how to cut this form of cake, and how to disasemble the tiers that are set somewhat inside the next tier?
