Today we celebrated the college graduation of my cousin (in law 😀 ) Nick. His wife (my cousin) wanted a funky cake and requested a topsy turvy cake based on the invite colors/pattern they used for the party. This was my first topsy turvy and lots of lessons learned. I want to send a big thank you to a fellow cake-buddy, Jeanne from Well Dressed Cakes for the great instructions she gave me to help me pull it off.
The cake itself is 4″, 6″, 8″ but each layer is carved to taper in at the bottom. Each layer is also 3 layers high (standard cake is 2 layers). They are fondant covered, with fondant accents and wires with fondant balls on the top. The words around the middle tier were taken from the invite and say “inspire”, “dream”, and “believe”. This was another S&S inspired creation – kudos to my sista for helping me come up with the designs for it and she helped with the actual decor as well and gave me moral support when the original top tier was falling apart in my hands 😀 (I later redid that entire tier)
