It’s that time again… another Craftsy Class Review! Today I want to talk to you about A New Look at the Crooked Cake by Colette Peters.
Whether you call them crooked, topsy-turvy or wonky… there’s no doubt that these cakes are some of the most challenging! In my four years of cake decorating, I’ve only done a handful of crooked cakes and every single time I catch myself holding my breath – hoping the cake will stay in the upright position until it arrives at it’s destination!
Here are a few of the crooked cakes I’ve done…
Retro Topsy Turvy Cake – I absolutely love this little cake. It wasn’t flashy or over the top, but it was fun and bright and happy!
Wonky Monster Trucks Cake – I’m doing another version of this cake soon and I can’t wait!
Wonky Rainbow & Peace Signs Cake – This cake wasn’t perfect. It was very hard. I shed tears because the fondant sagged and wrinkled and I just couldn’t make it look like I wanted. The inside was 6 layers of rainbow colors per tier and that just made the cake very unstable and TALL. But at the end of the day, the birthday girl was happy and everybody had cake, so I had to let it go!
Hot Wheels Cake… this was my very first wonky cake. I was 9+ months pregnant. I was scared. But I survived!!
Corpse Bride Topsy-Turvy Cake. This cake. It was a bridal shower cake and I really wasn’t sure about the design. And it was square – I had never done that before. But again, I lived and it turned out great!
And this Candy Cake? A favorite for sure! See all the details of it here 😉
Have you done any wonky cakes? Or maybe you call them topsy-turvy or crooked? Have you had good or bad experiences? Do you use a method that you’re confident with? Tell me about it!
