My cake decorating skills have never progressed beyond a dab of glacé icing and a cherry but I'd love a Charleston birthday cake. And I can't decide whether I'm impressed or shocked by cheats' ready-printed icing.
 My oven bakes everything on a tilt so I'm not sure that I'd achieve the effect, anyway.

Mary, you're priceless! I always feel better when you come up with such a gem!
(so glad too I am NOT the only woman who'se oven's results hinges on the Pizza Tower effect!)

Noelle, now I think of it, it's just a posher and far more expensive version of those cake toppers that come with children's cake-mix. Who needs Charleston when you could have Tom and Jerry!

Ooh, I'm impressed! Must admit to a bit of a guffaw at first but once I clicked on the link...well, apologies to the company.

In our house a tilted cake just means more icing on the lower end...it's win - win!

£20 for a sheet of icing?!

I used to design and decorate cakes by hand and charged not much more than that for the whole shebang.

Yes, well, nothing Charleston comes cheap, Toffeeapple! Quite a price, I agree.
