Topsy Turvy Wedding Cake

This past weekend, I made a wonderful cake for a fabulous couple.  This wedding cake was a Topsy Turvy Cake, also known as Whimsical or Mad Hatter cake.  A friend of mine had described it as "sophisticated and fun" - I love that description!



What I loved most about their cake was the color palette that they provided me - you just can't go wrong with the colors strawberry ice cream, pistachio green, lemon yellow and deep burgundy.  The orchids were handmade out of gumpaste to match their room decor.



They also picked some fabulous flavors:  bottom tier was Vanilla Butter Cake with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream, middle tier was Zesty Lemon Cake with Lemon Buttercream and the top tier was Strawberry Vanilla Cake with Strawberry Buttercream.

And here is a view from the top.

Hello Juanita,

I know from experience how difficult the production of the pie is.

The result is magnificent. Compliment

Greeting Jacob

Hey, Juanita...Wassup? I think this looks like a building from the Jetsons...I think it was a drive-in restaurant.

Thank you so much everyone! I love it too and I just received a wonderful note from the the client from their honeymoon.

Hey Ray! Yes, there is actually a drive-in theatre on the other side of the cake :-)

Just wandered how many people this would feed??

@Anonymous This was requested to feed 70 wedding cake servings. However, its so difficult because of the tall/short servings to really know. But I always make it bigger so they get more cake :-)
