- I am going to attempt a topsy turvy
cake......the kind that uses wedges without
cutting the cake. Any advise on how to
make them? What materials to use??
You will need styrofoam about two inches high and two inches smaller than whatever shape your cake will be. Cut the stryrofoam at an angle from top edge to bottom edge. Dowel your cakes for support and set aside.
To adhere fondant apply some vegetable shortening to your styrofoam.
Place your wedge on a cake board so it doesn't come in contact with the bottom or first tier. You will need a pair of extra hands...place the second tier on the top of the styrofoam wedge and immediately don't let go insert two dowels straight through to the bottom tier for support. Now add your next wedge and your next cake and so on.
Thanks for the great advise!
