Tutorial: One Cut Topsy Turvey

post #1 of 58
Thread Starter 
A technique learned from a book by Lindy Smith, âCakes to inspire and Desireâ. This is how I made it. You will need a 4â deep cake, a 3â will work but the final result will be flatter. If you do not have a 4â deep mold you can put a parchment paper collar to the mold and fill it up about 1 inch more than usual. This technique works better with a refrigerated cake. Also you will need Fondant, Buttercream, and a turn table. Here are some tools you will need too.

Image

Image

The first toothpick is positioned at a 45° angle at half of a centimeter to 1 centimeter from the top.

Image

Following the measurings guidelines below, insert toothpicks around the cake. This will give you a more acurate way to cut. One for the lowest point across from the 45 angle one and two more at the midway point on the sides of the cake


For a 10 x 4 inch Cake the lowest point will be 1.5 inches and the midway 2 ¼ inches measure from the bottom to top. For a 6x4 inch The LP will be 2 inches and the MP 2.5 inches
  
Image

This is how the cake should look after all the toothpicks are positioned. Four total, one angle, one low point, two midpoint. With a serrated knife proceed to cut diagonally following the toothpicks as guidelines.

Image


You will end up with two pieces. Apply buttercream to the top of the bottom piece of cake and slide the top turning it 160 degrees. Tall side to tall sidde and short to short.

Image

Image

Image

Apply a thin layer of buttercream.

Image

Cover with Fondant and smooth it.
Image

Cut the excess fondant.
Image

Image

The final product. I keep the bottom tier straight for support. I use an acrylic base between the bottom two tiers and plastic dowels cut to size between the first and second tier. Good Luck.

Looks much less intimidating than the other instructions I've read. I am really wanting to try a TT cake - maybe this would be a great way to try my first!

Thanks for your time and tutorial!
