My friend's mom asked me how to make a crooked cake, so I drew this up for her. Thought I'd share it with all of you:

Is there a way to make the instructions & diagrams bigger please? I can't read them, nor print them bigger.

If you click on it, it will open in another window. Drag your mouse over the picture, and your curser will turn into a magnifying glass....click again.

Thanks so very much for the instruction sheet. The only question I have at this point is: If one uses Masonite board as their cake board, would you still have to put another board on top in order for the dowel to be secured, or would the cake be secure enough with the dowels going through the baked batter? Is there another way to secure the cakes in addition to this? Can you tell that I have not "purposely" made a crooked cake prior to now? icon_lol.gif

haha lutie!! icon_biggrin.gif I have made a cake like this and had it sitting on a glass plate. It was four tiers high. I didn't have a cardboard piece between the two, and it worked fine. Drove 40 miles with it on my lap and it worked. I did glue the cake to the plate with frosting though, so I think that helped.

I think doing it this way is kinda at your own risk...
I don't really know of any other way to secure the cake, I've added two dowels before just because I wanted to feel safe about it. Also, there's an article here on cc about a different way to make a crooked cake as well...but, I've never had a problem doing it this way

Thank you, your method makes sense and is not as intimidating to me as the carving method. This I will actually do icon_biggrin.gif
