Topsy Turvy Happy Birthday Cake (173)

This 3-tier Topsy Turvy white cake with Oreo’s and cream filling was created for a party celebrating my grandmother’s 90th birthday (Nana), my great uncle’s 90th birthday (Uncle Joe) and my cousin’s 30th birthday (Emily). My family asked me if I had been drinking when I made this one….It’s supposed to be topsy turvy! The cake was covered in fondant, and decorated with a sugar paste bow and stars. Happy Birthday Nan, Uncle Joe and Emily! Hope you enjoyed the cake!

    Kelli – Your wish could come true if you know a good engineer who could figure out how to package these cakes so they aren’t harmed during shipment.

    I found this site when i was google-ing pictures of wedding cakes and i am sooooooo inspired by all of your cakes. I looked at one wedding cake that brought tears to my eyes. Its just amazing to picture at my wedding one day. Trust me, i am not getting married anytime soon. I hope one day to have a cake business with as great cakes as these.
    Thank you so much and continue to inspire!!!

  21. Briana says:

    Wow! I was looking around for cool birthday cakes and got linked to this page by my friend. From what I’m gathering, I can’t get one to my party, but it’s the best I’ve seen! Good job!

  22. Amelia says:

  24. Kaitlyn says:

    I think the topsyturvy cakes are an amazing idea. I LOVE THEM ALL! I was wondering where you deliver though.

  25. samantha says:

    this is the coolest thing ive ever seen in my life.
    is there anyway you could send a cake to chicago??

  26. Justine says:

    Unbelievable. Its gorgeous. My breath was taken, its stunning
    how much? lol ;)


  27. Anne says:

    Sorry Samantha – wish I could but these cakes are too delicate to ship such long distances :) We do have a delivery service that could technically deliver anywhere within the United States – but it would be a bit to expensive to deliver it all the way to Chicago.

  40. Jennifer says:

    This may seem like a goofy question but how do you serve this type of a cake? Do you separate the layers and then serve or cut from the tower? Your cakes look beautiful!

    1. Anne says:

      Hi Jennifer – Yes – you separate the layers and cut them like a regular cake. Read this for more information.
