Topsy Turvy cake

A topsy turvy cake is purposely crooked and whimsical. Usually colorful, bright, and tiered. Also many cover it in fondant, but it can be covered in butter cream as well. The cake in this post is covered in butter cream using the Viva towel method (which will be covered in a later blog) and decorations are also butter cream.

Here is a link to a step by step article to make one.

You Tube also has some great videos for Topsy Turvy construction.

Lessons I've learned:
*Use a dense cake, mixes don't hold up as well with a tiered cake and collapse on the sides.
*Dowel graciously!
*Sometimes a little less crooked is better.
*If people think your cake looks like it will fall over, then you've done it right! Ü

Happy caking!
