I hope you all enjoyed a glimpse into my wedding! Now, I want to show you how I stack my wedding cake to achieve the topsy turvy look. I have already explained how I construct a different type of topsy turvy cake here. For my wedding cake, I used a wedge construction in order to achieve the look I wanted.
First, I iced and fondanted all of the cakes separately and placed each cake on its own acrylic plate. Then I decorated each tier separately before attempting to stack the cake. If you do not have acrylic you can use wood just be sure you have a hole in the center for the center dowel support. (Sorry about the poor quality photo, it was late at night).
Here are some close-ups of the berries and other flowers I made for the cake.
Here is the cake stacked up normally before placing the wedges. Since my cake was fake, and for display purposes only, I can get away with stacking up the cake without any dowels.
This is of course the finished cake! Since the cake was fake I drove with the cake full assembled to the site of the wedding. Even though the cake was fake it was still a very stressful drive with all of the sugar flowers rattling in the back of the car.
I hope you enjoyed this short tutorial of how to make a wedge style topsy turvy. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.
