I have a lady that wants a full sheet butter cream cake. she would also like for me to do a 1/4 sheet cross cake and place it on top of the cake. How do I do this? I can do the sheet cake. I can do the cross cake. I have never placed a cake on top of another. To be honest I'm scared to do it because I don't even know how to even begin to attempt it.

Any help or suggestions?

Thank you in Advance[/size][/size][/size]

How tall is your sheet cake?

If your sheet cake is 2", you can just add the cross cake (as if you were making a layer cake).

If your sheet cake is 4", you will have to put the cross cake on a (cut-to-fit) cakeboard and use dowels for support.

Of course, for convenience in removing & cutting the cross cake - it can be placed on a cakeboard (and dowels).
