It looks to me as though it's made like any other whimsy cake. Just "tilted" in different directions. Get some practice foam and work it out.

Dawn...the usual whimsy cakes are done by making the cakes just appear to be crooked (the way you trim them). I think this is something else entirely. I think she used some kind of internal support to keep it together. I'm tempted to think the board is nailed to the table!

I understand how they are made.... I was saying you will just cut the "tilts" differently. In other words, cut your cakes where you normally cut them to tilt in another direction than for the typical whimsy cake. Then yes, use a dowel through the whole thing.

Like I said, get some cheap foam and practice a few cuts.

I know you understand how to make them Dawn. I guess the difference I was trying to point out is that with most whimsy cakes you see, the cake being crooked is an optical illusion. This one is really and truly crooked! I'm still wondering how it doesn't tip over.

Yes, it is Cake Carousel, and it is a good shop (too small for comfort, but has a good supply of most everything), it is about a 15 to 20 minute drive for me to Richardson. There is another one closer to DFW that I'm told is good, Elisabeth's, but I haven't managed to get over there as yet. I think previously their name was Cake Central, don't know when or why they changed it. Janice

What a funny coincidence! I envy you both. There isn't a shop for miles and miles where I live. We do have a Hobby Lobby but they carry mostly Wilton stuff. I have to special order almost everything.

Yeah i wish i had a closer one to me. Both of those stores are about 2 hours from me. Hey Janice is that other one you are talking about in Plano??? Did you guys see on the birthday cake challenge one of the guys made a crooked cake using clear spacers for each layer. He didn't cut his actual cake he got the dame affect with the spacers. I wonder if that would work for this??? i think i will run to walmart and get some foam to practice cutting. That will have to wait though until this weekend when my husband can watch my sick kid. cant go around giving everyone chicken pox lol i think iw ould get chased out of the store. lol

No...I missed that. I would have loved to have seen it though. These cakes amaze me! Hope your little one will be feeling better soon.

I'm not sure that it's not an optical illusion. I don't think anyone has posted instructions yet, unless I missed them which is always possible. And since dowels are used in all other types of cakes, I'm sure they are used here.

yeah dawn i made a mad hatter cake using your instructions in march. we used dowels in it for support. eventually i will get a copy of the picture and post it.
hey i got it maybe if i leave the dowels out if will actually be falling over and i can get the affect i want. lol yeah right i would never do that . thats all i need the cake to come crashing down 5 minutes before everyone gets here.

The other cake supply store, Elizabeth's Cake Supplies, is at 112 South Ector Dr., Euless 76040, the phone is 817-267-6691, according to the maps I've found it is off Airport Frwy. From here in Carrollton it is 23 miles. I don't have any other reason to go over in that direction, so just haven't been there yet. My cake teacher goes there sometimes, it is on his way to work at DFW. If you come in from East Texas this one might be closer for you than Richardson. Janice

I don't remember anyone saying dowels weren't used. This cake is just so different from even Collette's other crooked cakes. Her other's, you can tell how they were done. This one has me scratching my head. If you look at other crooked cakes and follow a line down from the top tier, you'll intersect the tiers below it. The one in the pic doesn't do that. It's a marvel.
