I'm planning out my first topsy turvy in late April for a baby shower.

Is it recommended that you use a dense cake type for this? Just any tips would help.

I used the WASC for it, but I've heard that the denser the cake the better. If you have time you should really order Sugarshack's Totally Topsy Turvy DVD. If not, get on youtube and search topsy turvy and there is a video that is very helpful by Janellecakes. HTH

And do a small practice cake first, it will help. What type are you doing? The only ones I have done is with the slanted top and the hole cut in it for a level spot to set the next cake on. If thats how you are doing it, a little practice cutting the whole the right size will help. If its too small the sides will start to break away. My first one I thought I had it right but after adding the fondant to both cakes it was too small.

I recommend sugar shacks DVD as well. I find the ganache under fondant makes it much more stable.
