If you are using a crusting buttercream, you could just use a ruler edge or spatula edge to make slight indent lines on the crusted icing marking out the pieces. This is what I do- the marks make it much easier for the client to know exactly where to cut! thumbs_up.gif

Once marked, all you add are the rosebuds! I always do a nice base border and a smaller top border to finish it off. (I'm terrible at getting nice clean edges on a sheet cake! icon_lol.gif )

It is simple to measure and mark out a sheet cake by starting from an edge & making ever 2". On a sheet 2" deep, a serving is 2x2x2.

Do you know how to make the rosebud? A tip 63 makes quick work of iticon_smile.gif

Thanks cakedout, and kakeladi, i do use a crusting BC and thanks for the tip on using tip 63 im not real keen on making them but they look ok, do you add the green tip on the ends or do you just leave them with out it??I hope i measured right on this paper that i did i took sheets of paper and made them the size of my 11x15 in cake and marked them off i get around 35 slices, hope this is correct she needs at least 32
