Wonderful Topsy Turvy Cakes


Sometimes you see a cake in a magazine or online and really want to try your hand at a new design. Trying new things such as a topsy turvy cake is exciting but never lose sight of the fact that cultivating the habit of being organized and planning before baking or decorating can save a great deal of time, money and stress. Always take into consideration the weather, time of year, space allotted for the cake, theme, number of guests and distance to travel when planning your creation. These elements can dictate shape, size, covering, filling and type of decoration on the cake. Keep your skill level and experience in mind as well and always practice any unfamiliar design elements before the big cake assembly day. Cake decorating should be fun not ulcer inducing!

One of the most interesting and delightful cake trends for any occasion is the topsy turvy or mad hatter cake. Anyone who has seen one of these whimsical cakes will delight in their crooked gravity defining layers.

Although these cakes look like they are about to topple over they are architecturally sound and surprisingly easy to make even for a beginner. This type of cake simply takes a little more time than a traditional sedate tiered cake.

Topsy turvy cakes can be two tiers high or several stacked layers and the range of decorating options for the theme is endless. These unique cake creations are usually encased in fondant and further enhanced with more fondant cut into patterns, shapes, pearls or draped like fabric. Butter cream is also a nice option for covering and decorating this style of cake or even a combination of both fondant and butter cream. The cake can be an explosion of pretty colors or even simply white or cream for a more elegant presentation.

The secret behind these toppling masterpieces is that the tiers actually sit on a flat surface the same as every other tiered cake. The optical illusion is created through clever cutting and even with special cake pans. A mix of cake shapes can add to the look of the mad hatter cake. Try combining round, square, oval and hexagonal tiers together for effect. The angles on the tiers can be cut at any angle and then each lower tier is further cut out in the centre to create a one or two inch flat surface for the top layers to sit in. So the cakes are not just sitting on angles. A cake board and dowels are also utilized to make the cake even sturdier.
