I Made an Instruction Sheet for a Crooked Cake!!! - Page 6

post #76 of 132
Thanks so much Sarsi!!! I just made my first one, but used the carving method - your way seems much better (and simpler) so will definitely give it a try on my next cake!!!!!!

These instructions seem so much easier than the carving method. I made my first crooked cake for my daughters birthday yesterday and I used the carving method. But her cake was covered with Buttercream and I read in one of the posts that you would not advise this method with buttercream. I will try it with fondant...will mmf fondant be alright?

Hi Sarsi,

Thanks for the info! I made a crooked cake tonight and did everything just like your directions, like I have in the past. The problem is, when I look at it, it bugs me. It looks just like your diagram but notice the sides are very crooked and when you look at other topsy cakes the one side usually ends up straight even though it is stacked crooked. What did I do wrong? I almost feel like I need to prop it up on the long side. Have you had this problem before?

hmmm...I have not noticed this problem before. Let me look through my photos, but I'm pretty sure the sides are straight. Did you stack the cakes absolutely opposite from each other? Bottom Tier's tall side is directly below short side of top tier?? Lined up in the center??? This COULD be the problem...

Sarsi, thanks for posting instructions for this and for your helpful advice on how to get it larger so you can read and print. that was helpful. I am going to be trying this soon because I have a future customer that wants a topsy-turvy cake for her wedding cake and I have never made one so I can practice this for awhile. God bless you. icon_smile.gif

Thank you but I would like to ask for clarification on the dowel height for the bottom layer........they are to be the same length?
post #85 of 132

You're welcome!!

Cakelady232- The dowels are to be the same height as the cake is. They should be flush with the top of the cake. All four dowels will not be the SAME height as the cake is tapered on top. Hope this helps clarify...let me know if I didn't make sense! icon_biggrin.gif
