Cake Serving Size Examples made of Paper or Cardstock

post #1 of 60
Thread Starter 
I've been coming across some "sample serving size pieces" here on CC, some made from wood (like MikeRowsHunny's fabulous ones here: http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=88648), some made from styrofoam, etc.

And I've been reading people's comments of "Oh, I wish I could make some like that...." but they don't have the supplies/talent/know-how, etc.

I don't have a cake business, but I think it's a really cool idea.

And I haven't been on CC very long, but I've already learned so much. So I wanted to offer something in return. While I still lack a lot of cake knowledge, I do know my way around graphics software, so this is what I came up with:

Cake Serving Size Samples that you can print, cut out, fold and tape or glue. And if you do consultation away from your home, you can make them so they store flat...

Before you download, please know:
*I have only test-assembled the 2x1.5x4 size. But I assume the others will all work the same way. If I did something screwy on the others, please let me know.

*I didn't print mine after I made the pdf, so if there's something screwy (lines too dark or light, some areas left blank), please let me know.

*I didn't know how much detail to put in the directions. I don't want to insult peoples' intelligences but I'm also quite comfortable making things out of paper and others might not be. So if I should change any of the wording, please let me know.

*If there's anything else you think I should change, add, remove, etc, please let me know. icon_smile.gif


The pdf can be downloaded from my mediafire files here: http://www.mediafire.com/?8a4iwqv2jba7tqc That will also be the most current version...

OK, now I'm off to read more forum posts... icon_lol.gif

EDITED TO ADD: photos of my sample piece were too large to add here as attachments, so I've uploaded them to the templates gallery. CLick here if you want to see what one looks like on a dessert plate: http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1750442

Very coolicon_smile.gif thanks for doing this. I think it would also help people who have to cut the cake as well.

Thank you so much that is so cool looking.
I'm going to print them out right now and put them together.
I'll let you know how they come out.

Thank you so much for doing this! It's a great idea and a really helpful tool. I don't know if it's because I am on a mac and my programs are a little different, but the "cake" part is offset to the black lines when I downloaded it. It comes slightly outside the lines on the right and bottom sides. Otherwise it's perfect. Thanks again!

They were great. I just printed them out on regular paper and they worked wonderfully. Thank you.

okay I just finished putting them together and they are just awesome. I love it. I did print them out on reg. printer paper and it worked out fine for me. they look so much like real cake once you have them just laying on the table.

when i printed mine out it came out like that. but once I cut them out they looked great it's done on purpose I believe cause it's the bottom part of the cake . It gives the space for the layer of the icing that it needs if you were to turn the cake upside down.

schwammrs, You did a wonderful job

Thank you so much
