Hello. I am not a cake decorator at all - just the simple kind. My daughter wants a topsy turvy cake for her Sweet 16th. However, after going to bakeries, I cannot afford to pay $135 for a cake. So, I am wondering if this type of cake is something that a beginner can attempt to make. Also, we don't like the taste of fondant, so is there something else I can use to decorate it with. Maybe use fondant for the pieces but not to put all over the cake. With that being said, would buttercream withhold this type of cake? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!! Oh, she would like it decorated in the theme of Mardi Gras................if it's not workable, she understands. Thank you!!!

$135 for a Topsy turvy cake is a steal!
I'm doing a Topsy turvy this weekend and
ingredients alone have cost me $100! And I had most of the supplies!
I would say it's not really beginner friendly! I've been doing cakes for a
few years and I'm just mow trying it for the first time!

Buttercream will work if you decide to give it a shot!
If you do however, give yourself plent of time! I started baking
And making flowers last Monday and it's due this Sunday, and I'm feeling
the pressure!

Best of luck!
HTH some!
