This is the tutorial I used for my first (and only so far) topsy turvy. The tutorial is for a three tier, but I only did two tiers. I used bubble tea straws for the support and it worked just fine. This is a really good tutorial.

You can use fondant or buttercream but it would probably be a lot easier with fondant. At least for me anyway icon_smile.gif

Good luck danni73.

I've made them with both fondant and buttercream and as many as four tiers. I used the same method as in the tutorial previously mentioned. I've made both tapered and straight sides. I think they are easier with fondant just because the tiers are easier to move and stack. If you plan to transport the cake, either use a suport structure like in the tutorial or use cardboard separators and the center dowel method. HTH
