My church is having a banquet and has requested two sheet cakes, precut. Is there a design I could do or am I stuck doing the standard grid with a flower in the middle of each piece? I would like to get more exposure, but don't feel the simple design would show much.
Could I precut the cake before I frost it or will the frosting tear all over when they serve it?
You can put anything in the grids depending on the holiday/function. Like for Thanksgiving, you can put melted yellow, orange, green and brown choc. in a leaf mold and place on grids over piped grass..easy to do! What's the holiday/function?
I think you should wait until it is frosted before you cut the cake. The icing will pull when the pieces are taken out and it may make a mess.
You could also do a cupcake cake. You know make a design with cupcakes and ice them like one big cake. Just a thought.
I figured my option would be to have a grid with 100 little things on each piece.
The banquet is just to kickoff some big changes in the church. They are unveiling some new things like more activities for kids, different ways to promote the church, etc. Nothing festive or anything.
Thanks for your help!
There is one in my photos I did for a wedding shower. I iced and then cut the pieces with dental floss (plain - no mint). Then I piped over the cuts with a small border. It did very well at the party. You could pipe something like a cross and/or dove - different religous symbols, or fall leaves.
When you pipe over the precut area, how well does the piped design come off? Thanks for sharing this idea!
It's not very wide, deep nor thick, so it comes off pretty clean. Not bad at all.
I never understand why some people want them precut? I mean, how hard is it to cut a square/rectangle cake into square pieces? I've made small marks on the border (it looks like part of the design) so the person knows where to cut it to get the number of pieces they need.
I have, however, seen cakes that are precut. The person cut the cake, then iced it .... similar to the cupcake-cake process. When the piece is picked up, it just pulled away and there was no "damage" to the icing overall.
