I think it would look just perfect set for a Walmart wedding where they get married among the flowers in plastic pots and price tags in Lawn and Garden.

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

Yes.  Many brides can't afford tiered wedding cakes so they go with a 100-serving full sheet with a 6" on top to freeze for their 1st anniversary.  If it's decorated nicely, it doesn't look tacky.

Here is one I saw on the internet. You did not specify whether this is for a birthday or wedding cake.

Perhaps I should specify... I don't know if I've ever made one for a birthday, but I've made many for weddings for the budget reason I've previously mentioned.

This may not help much since yours is a birthday cake. I'd never seen that done before this cake. (A small tier on a sheet cake.) It's not my style but when I complimented the lady that made it I was sincere. I think she did a fine job. People like different things. I personally think it's a bit crass to put down this style of cake. This was made with love by a dear friend of a dear friend for a (coming) grandbaby's shower. To each their own. :)

The more I think about it, the more I like the idea of sending the person of honor home with their own little tier. That's clever! (I don't get out much hehe.)

I have done one cake this way. It was for a company grand opening cake. The smaller top cake was covered with an icing picture of the company logo.

This isn't with a round on top but it is tiered sheet cakes :)

WOW Haven't seen a cake like that before. Not sure how I feel about that look. Definitely looks " homemade" .

I did a sheet cake with double heart cakes on it for an anniversary party.  It was my first time putting fondant on the heart cakes and I did not really like the way it turned out.  Everybody else loved it.  I needed to do more work on the hearts to define them.  It should be in my pictures.
