I really want to make a topsy turvy cake, but I am scared! lol I read where someone posted instructions on how to do it. I am just wondering, can you do it using buttercream instead of fondant? I am not sure if the fondant helps to keep the layers "together" since they are cut at an angle. If anyone has any suggestions on making a topsy turvy PLEASE post!!! Thanks!!

The first topsy turvy I made was 3 tiers and the bottom 2 were buttercream, only the top was fondant (birthday girls request) doing buttercream tiers made me so nervous! Best advice I can give you is cold cake!!!! Colder the better! The BC topsy turvy cake I made is in my album, it's the orange and pink one with the shoe on top. I only had to transport my cake about 5 minutes away and it was an easy drive, but I transported the cake COLD too!

Also, make sure your tiers fit together perfectly and that everything is level! good luck!

I went on youtube and there are some really good tutorials. I just made my first one, a 3 tier, following those instructions and it went quite well. I did use fondant but I don't think that made any difference other than easier to handle when stacking.
Good luck.
