Crooked sheet cake, has anyone made one?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
So I was recently asked to make a baby shower cake that was crooked, only she wanted it on a sheet cake. It will also have a smaller tier on top that is crooked as well. I have never seen one done like this. Can it be done?

What do you mean by crooked?

Topsy turvy or whatever it's called. It will bea two layer cake.

Why in the world would she want a topsy turvy sheet cake?  What sizes does she want?  I do round topsy turvy cakes all the time and have seen square topsy turvy cakes but never a sheet cake.  Topsys are hard to begin with and doing it in a sheet cake would be even harder.  If you haven't done one before I would not start with a sheet cake.

It will be a 9x13 2 layer cake with a 6 inch square on top, all topsy turvy. Do you think it will look right?

Her reasoning is that it will be easier to cut the cake, which I think will not work.

I think it would look odd just with the sizes not the mention the topsy turvy effect.  What I would suggest is to get out those size pans and stack them to see what it will look like and you will see how big a difference there are between the two sizes.  Also the topsy turvy effect just wont look right with a sheet cake and an different shape on top.  You can also sketch it out with all the decorations and see what you and the customer thinks.

Thanks! I wasnt really planning on making the cake like she said, I just wondered if it was possible. I will go with squares.

I am sure it is possible but super hard since it is a rectangle and will be longer on one end.  Plus, the whole purpose of a topsy is so you can turn it and see a different angle which wouldn't have the same effect with a sheet cake.

I agree, what is being described just sounds so odd :-?

I am a little surprised at the negativity in the responses! Of course it can be done! I agree, get with your customer and sketch it out. Doesn't have to fancy sketching, just enough to get a better idea of what she's envisioning. After the creativity I've seen on this site, there is nothing that can't be done, and done well! Good luck!

There is no negativity, I told her it could be done but would be super hard and would look super weird.  It just would not turn out to be a real topsy turvy cake because once you turn it a certain way it will look weird and just like a hill or something.

I hope I didn't come across as negative. The way I interpreted the description, it sounded peculiar. That's not negative, just not understanding or comprehending,
