Thanks everyone = that was very helpful!!! All of your SpongeBob cakes were awesome.
I need to make a SpongeBob cake where it looks like he is sitting...instead of a flat sheet cake. I have been through the galleries but they don't give much detail how it's done. Some say they use 9x13's cut in half or into 3rd's but don't really explain how to cut, stack, etc. Can anyone give me instructions on how to do this? Thanks so much!
I'm thinking about using a a cake dummy at a bridal fair next month. I've never even seen a "dummy" in person. How do you decorate it or cover it with frosting or fondant? Are they easy to work with? If I stack or tier a cake, how does that work with a dummy? Any help or ideas are appreciated.
They almost look like small white golf tees. They have something to do with constructing a cake, I guess, but I have no idea what thier purpose is or how to use them.
What frosting tip do you use to make the evergreen trees? I made them for the first time on my penguin cake. Was not happy how they turned out. I used a number 70 leaf, but it didn't look right, or I didn't do it right. What is the technique to have them curl up as they go up the tree. I have seen some really awesome trees on CC and mine need some help.I don't know if you can see them very well in my picture, but I'll post it anyway.Thanks
I need to make a stacked cake to feed about 150 people. The problem is, my oven will only accomodate a 14" round. It is a convection and a 16" won't allow the door to close all the way. Any advice on what would look good, feed 150, and start with a 14" round bottom? Do they sell two half round pans that equal a 16"? Doubtful, huh?
In my opinion, if the cakes are to be stacked, not tiered, then they look best if they are of equal numbers apart. for example: a 6, 10, and 14 would leave you 4 inches between each cake. Here is a good place to look at sizes/servings. http://www.wilton.com/cakes/tiered-cakes/serving-amounts-100-150.cfmEarlene offers a little different chart with larger pieces for wedding and party sizes.

Hi, you could make a 12", 10", and a 6" and should feed 95 (according to Wiltons chart) 14,10,and 6 would give about 103. hth
Thanks a lot! I will definately try it tomorrow. I do have a really good recipe for a whipped cream/cream cheese frosting that is wonderfully delicious and light, but you can't really do too much with it.Thanks again.
