Ok I think sheets cakes are boring and cheesy and very rarely do I bump into an awesome and very creative sheet cake. Post a favorite sheet cake by anyone or yourself.

I agree, sheet cakes have become generic and related with grocery stores. I have tried to steer clients away from them but because of what I have seen here I am thinking about offering a special line of sheet cakes!

There are so many talented people here and they do an AWESOME job on ALLtypes of cakes. Kudos to you! thumbs_up.gif

Here is one that I loved so much I copied for my own granddaughters baby shower last February. Shame on me, I don't think I listed 'llee' as the person that inspired me, so I will try to redeam myself here.

I just posted a similar thread stating my awe to those that can make a sheet cake look good, so I only find it fitting that I post the ones I love as well.

I say Thanks for this thread, people here WILL NOT get away from sheet cakes and I'm sooooooooooooooooooooooooo tired of flowers here flowers there, I try to get them into a little fondant lately for a change up but maybe these will steer them away. Take a look at mine and steer me with some what might help. Thanks I can't wait to keep watching this one. I have yet to sell a round cake........................I take that back I did but only one. icon_surprised.gif

I have not posted about any comments bothering me before, but I sort of take offense to the "cheesy" and "boring" remark about sheetcakes. I happen to think there are so many sheetcakes that are just as nice as any other cake on this site. I have also seen many sheetcakes that are as awesome and creative as stacked and tiered cakes. I am one who makes a lot of sheetcakes and I have done extremely well with them. If I was somewhat computer literate, I would post my pictures, however, I seem to be better with a piping bag, than a computer, and I have yet to learn how to post pictures. Anyway, back to my point... I think it is fine to like a certain type of cake over another type, but I do not think it is okay to call something cheesy and boring, because it just might offend someone who really likes them. Just my opinion though.

I think the point of the thread is that there are amazing, beautiful sheet cakes. And that they don't have to be boring or cheesy or generic. There are many creative ideas out there that have been interpreted on sheet cakes and the original poster wanted to highlight them.

I, myself, posted about how seeing the cakes on this site have changed my perspective on what a sheet cake looks like and the wonderful things that can be done with them.

I applaud ALL cake artists whatever they do and I think it is especially impressive when someone takes something that is perceived as "boring", in this case a sheet cake, and makes something that is truly creative, beautiful, and artistic!

Again, I say kudos!

PS-I can't figure out how to link or post pics either. icon_wink.gif [/i]

Well I started this thread for fun and by cheesy and boring. I was thinking grocery store type cakes that we are used to seeing all the time and wanted too see what other members have found in the galleries that I have not seen yet and I thought everyone would like my choices, a little different out of the "grocery store" type of cake. I think it's working! "cheesy" and "boring" are just adjectives. I like sheet cakes!

Everyday you see this more and more every little thing gets taken out of proportion and someone gets offended, it's getting old.

Ok, I'll be brave and throw one of my own in the ring. I just did these by request for my brother's med. school graduation. They were a huge hit and I am quite pleased with how they turned out! It's all about thinking outside the box!
