Ok, so YES this happens to be a Christmas decorated cake, but the building of a Topsy Turvy cake is the same no matter what the occasion, so follow along step by step with this very detailed video tutorial below and feel free to decorate as you wish!
At the start of this video I show you my sketch of how I intended my cake to look.
I always recommend to draw up some “blueprints” of your vision for these elaborate cakes before you begin.
This way you can “Plan your work, and then work your plan!”
In this video I used my Golden Vanilla Cake prepared 2 times to make 3 8″ layers and 3 5″ layers.
I also made 1 recipe of the Swiss Vanilla Buttercream for the filling and icing.
I always use purchased fondant for my cakes and the brand I prefer is Satin Ice
Be sure to make your modeling chocolate for all of the decorations too! This part can be prepared days ahead of time.
