I am making a baby shower cake for this weekend. My plan is to use the long loaf pan, cut into 4x4 squares. I want to set the blocks on an angle, so you can see 2 of the sides of each block. On top it will spell out 'baby' and then on the sides it will spell out 'welcome'.
Since turning them on an angle will make the whole thing 32" long, any suggestions on how to display them? I was thinking just using 7" square plates.
Any other thoughts or tips?
I would find a cardboard box (probably a paper towel box at the grocery store) and cut it to the appropriate size and quadruple the cardboard (or more) until it's stable enough ... on second thought, it might be better to do two blocks on one cardboard and two blocks on the other to make sure it doesn't buckle. Anyhow, cover the cardboard with pretty baby-colored paper (wrapping paper). Cover the whole thing after with clear contact paper.
This way the cakes can be closer together than if each was on a separate plate.
