About this Bake

I made this cake for a friend whose daughter and son were turning three and two, respectively. They wanted a crazy, over-the-top cake for their joint party.

Top tip

The key to this topsy-turvy cake was carving the tops at an angle, and then cutting out smaller, flat circles where the next tier would be placed. Each cake is actually entirely level, but the illusion is that it's crooked.
