How do I get the tapered look on my cake?

Alright, I know you guys know what I'm talking about. I want it to look like a flower pot. I've seen sugarshack do it on a few of her cakes and it looks amazing. Can someone please give me instructions?

Ok, so if you want a flower pot. Bake 3 round cakes, same size, say 10 inche rounds. Fill all layers. Refridgerate. Put a 7 inch cake board underneath and a 10 or 9 inch cake board on top. Using a serrated knife or a very sharp knife that is long enough to reach top to bottom and carve around the three layers using the cakeboards as guides. HTH!

Ok, no carving needed, 10", 9", 8" or whatever 3 sizes you need, largest to smallest.

Except to straighten out the edges to make a straight line, angled down do there are no bumps, just trim up to make neat all around

No Way! I don't have to cut into to the cake??? U should should see the cake I just made. I practiced on two 8'" rounds and just cut free hand. It looked like a space ship. I think I might also need firmer cake.

Umm, yep..Three different sizes, fill and trim the hump around each layer so there's nothing sticking out and you can still use the cakeboards as guides, trust me, it makes it a lot easier. I make beer cakes this way, same shape but beers sticking out the top. And I'm sure it doesn't look like a space ship, maybe ultra modern plant poticon_smile.gif
