I'm making a cake for a baby shower on Saturday. The hostess has requested that I make baby blocks with a smaller cake (if needed) for 30-40 people. I found these two cakes on here and have PM'd the persons who made these cakes with no response. Perhaps they are just busy and I totally understand that, but this cake is due on Saturday and I just have the first part of this week to prepare. I really have some questions and am hoping that someone will help me out here.
Cake 1... the 3 blocks with green borders and "JKK" initials:
~ How many cakes do you think I would need to make for these size cubes? She mentions they are 6" squares but I was wondering if they could be cut from a larger cake or if there is a 6" square pan that can be purchased. Do they look like they are just 2 layers with a filling in between? How many does this look like it would serve?
Cake 2... the 2 blocks/1 sheet with pink & blue borders:
~ Basically the same questions... What size are the blocks on top and the cake underneath? How many does this look like it will serve?
If anyone can help me out that would be great!! Thanks so much!
Ok, I'm gonna take a shot at it. I would think that if they were 6" cakes that it would be three layers high to make it as close to a true square, although the cakes you posted they only look like two. As for servings, I have no idea. You can definitely make these out of sheet cakes and there is a 6" square pan that you can buy. HTH. Sorry I couldn't be more help..
Edited..Maybe the cakes you linked to were 3" layers and not 2" layers. Just a thought..
I did a block cake a few months ago and I used 6" pans three layers to make them 6X6 they feed about 30 to 35. You can look at the cakes I did at this site. http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-photo_1285361.html If you need to know anything maybe I can help.

Thanks to both of you for your responses. ArtWorkCakes... are you saying that you ended up baking 9 cakes for the 3 blocks?? If so... wow! This may be more time consuming than I thought...
I do the Baby blocks cakes as 4" cubes. Bake in an 8" square pan and cut into fourths. Cover with fondant. I won't do them in bc any more. And I charge $24 EACH.
Leahs... how many would you have to make to serve 30-40 people? Are those single layer blocks you make?
