Hiya,

What type of cake did you use? For Topsy Turvy cakes you need to use a heavy cake like chocolate mudcake. I use the mudcake and ganache recipe from the planet cake cookbook. Everyone loved it. It is an Aussie book though, but you should be able to buy it from the internet.

Don't give up! My very first topsy turvy cake was a hit. I had trouble with the fondant the second time around. I made it from scratch. Made 4 batches and the last 2 would not roll out and hold without tearing and or cracking after placed on cake. Finally resorted to a store variety but ran out of time. the cake was due in 3 hours. finally resorted to a butter cream for the base, still looked beautiful but 2 blocks from my destination and the cake started breaking apart on the 2nd and base layer's. I did not like the fondant I purchased but I am looking forward to trying the "Iced Satin" brand. Any one tried this brand. I have another TT (topsy turvy) due next week. The cake mix is important and I have found my old tried and blue, cheap mix from a box works well. Of course I add additional flavoring such as Vanilla-Butternut, Bouquet, Brandy etc. Any Who, I gave her deposit back and took a big hit. But I love making this cake.
