I'm making a top hat cake this weekend, just like this one:
I have two questions:
(1) How do I get the 2 curves in the brim?
(2) The customer just wants the cake for show. I would like to do a tapered effect and have the cake about the same size as it is in the picture above. So with that being said, what size cakes should I use, how many layers (2 or 3) and how many inches should I taper it down to?
