I've been wanting to try a topsy turvy cake for awhile now and was excited to get the chance to do so. I completely understand how to do the topsy turvy cake but found it a little bit more tricky to do than I had expected! The design is modified from a cake done by Pink Cake Box. I'm happy with it for my first attempt at a topsy turvy cake, although I have certainly received some odd (and non-complimentary!) comments about this one!
This is a chocolate cake with a caramel-butterscotch buttercream covered in a caramel-flavored fondant. It's for a small get together so it is only a 6" cake on the bottom with a 4" cake on top and I think the small size is one of the things that made it more difficult to put together.
The curly Q's on the top are made with fondant as are the stripes, dots and lettering on the cake board. I really do like the bright colors on this one - so cheery!
This blog will follow my adventures with cake, pastry and all things sweet!
