The idea with putting topspin on the serve is to brush over the top of the ball or up the back of the ball. This will get the ball spinning forward.
To disguise this is quite difficult. For the pendulum serve you need to hit the ball late in the swing of the serve, when your bat is moving upwards. For a tomahawk serve it is hitting the ball earlier in the swing when the bat is moving up.
