I have been asked to do a University of Kentucky Logo cake. Here is the problem-she only wants it to be in the shape of the UK letters. No sheet cake, no pictures just the UK letters. UK logo has the k overlapping the u. She wants it to be white with blue outline. Would you make one cake and then carve the logo out in one piece or carve out the two seperate letters and then put them together some how? Seems like this should be easy to do but I am worried about it. This is for a wedding but they have the wedding cake and the grooms cake. They are getting married on a day when UK plays and they are die hard fans. I don't want to have an ugly cake at their wedding! Thanks

i am far from an expert, but you could make 2 sheet cakes, carve the "K" out of one and then the other, cut out the "U" but have two seperate pieces, so when setting up, you can just put the two "U" pieces around the "K" does that make sense?

What Kimberlina25 said makes sense thumbs_up.gif , just make sure the sizes of the two letters are the same so they will line up properly. You lucky dog geting to make a KENTUCKY. cake.

Depending on how daring and artistic you are; you could enlarge the logo and then place it on the cake and cut out around it. Then it is all in one piece, BUT, you would have to then ice and decorate it as such. That might be a little difficult.

GOOD LUCK! Post the pic!

I am starting to think this would be easier in one piece. I would not carve out the square inside the U, just the little rectangle at the top, in between the bars at the top of the U. Same with the trapezoid shape in the inside bottom of the K. I would just go up enough to carve out the bottom horizontal bars of the K..............
