Your Fav. most awesome sheet cakes. - Page 16

post #226 of 256
This is such a fun thread!! I almost always do sheet cakes, at least until I found CC a couple of weeks ago (or is it months... time flies on this site that's for sure thumbs_up.gif ). Now I can't wait to try out all the great ideas of stacked cakes I get from here.

Anyway, here are two sheet cakes that I have made

This was my first "real' sheetcake. It was so much fun to make and I was just thrilled that it was a hit! (Yes, it's a typical OTH cake, oh well!!! icon_lol.gif)

With CC being down intermittent, I went thru this whole thread. It's a great fun thread, thanks for posting! I love all the pictures. icon_biggrin.gif

Kakeladi that cake you made is very cute indeed! I took a peak at it. I think that the sheet cakes are becoming my favorite. It's like having a big piece of construction paper to design and fill up!

heh heh, ART was my favorite subject in school. Especially acrylics, pastels, and oil painting! Now, ceramics was another matter! icon_cry.gificon_lol.gif

Here are a couple of mine. I can't say that I like doing sheet cakes. Mainly b/c I draw a blank w/ such a large blank canvas & icing those things gives me heartburn thinking about it. I'm not great (I actually hate how it never turns out like I want) but trying to improve with time & practice

I don't mind doing sheet cakes. I guess I kind of look at them as a blank sheet of paper that I can put anything on. Here are a couple of favorites that I have done.

I just made my newest contribution to buttercream sheet cakes. I love them. I made a Victorian Valentine. I think sheet cakes depend on the design to make a statement.

This is such a great thread. I'm not one who enjoys doing sheet cakes. I know tons of people look at them as an empty canvas. Me, I look at it as now what? Its been so much fun going back and looking at all these sheet cakes. I only have 1 that is a favorite of mine. I make several at graduation time.

Not that any more posts on this are needed, but here's my two-cants worth, anyway. Of necessity, I always use a very large sheet cake(about 24" by 18" or so - it holds five of my standard cake recipes) as the base for my granddaughter's birthday cakes, because birthday parties here in Mexico tend to be well-attended affairs, especially outside of the largest cities (my granddaughter lives in Cancún). I think of this base cake as my canvas. I've often used it alone and decorated it with FCBT images - Tigger, Garfield and all the Madagascar characters. Last year, it was the characters from a cartoon from Yucatán called "La Gruta del Alux". Other times, I've used the sheet cake as a base and put other, smaller cakes on top. This child and her mother have birthdays on consecutive days, so one year I put a doll cake dressed as a queen on top, as well as a pillow cake with with the figurine of a 3-year-old on it. The words were to the effect that "The queen and her princess are having a birthday...", only in Spanish (La reina y su princesita cumplen años...). This year, I'm learning to use fondant and gumpaste, so I'm planning on a beach scene to end all beach scenes. I'll either send in a photo or direct you to the pertinent blog on Cake Wrecks.

It depends on my mood if I like sheetcakes or not...sometimes they turn out cute and other times, my mind goes blank. It's a great way to show off a frozen buttercream transfer or your ability to make pretty flowers...but sometimes you can doll them up to look as fancy as any other cake. Afterall, they're just a rectangle instead of a circle, square, etc. You can also add to them to make them 3D like any other cake (like my noah's arc cake)

Here are a few of my sheet cakes that I thought turned out nice:

Baby afghan shower cake:
