This is my first attempt at a topsy turvy cake. I watched a tutorial, but didn't exactly follow the directions. I learned a lot and I think I am ready to try to make one the proper way. I made this cake for my twin nieces' 12th birthday party. My husband said this is one of my best cakes, and I think I might have to agree, which is pretty amazing because my daughter's birthday party was the night before and I was working on about 3 hours sleep.

My neighbor asked me to make a cake for her son's birthday. They were taking him and his friends to see The Last Airbender. I had seen previews, but had to do a little research to find out enough to make a cake. In the movie, the Avatar can control the elements, so I decided to cover the cake with fondant and paint (with food dye) a section of each cake for each element. I added round disc on each section with the symbol of the element. Then I made a figurine of Avatar. I enjoyed painting the fondant and trying out a new technique I have very little experience with.
