My photographer for years asked me to make this cake for her after seeing the cake I made for my sons party. I had fun with it. It was my second cake, and my first topsy turvy cake. It had some very obvious errors (like the bow...boy do I need work there! Oh, and measuring the size to cut out but taking into account the frosting and fondant on top of that- geeesh!), but I learned a lot from that experience, and can't wait to make another topsy turvy cake!
