I need to make a cake that spells out L I Z. I just purchased this pan:
I am trying to determine how many servings this will render. Does anyone have this pan that could tell me about how many servings each letter would give me?
Cool pan! I think with something that custom you're going to have to figure the servings sizes yourself. because it's going to vary quite a bit from letter to letter. (a B will likely give quite a few more servings than an I).
Ont he plus side, I don't think it will be too hard to figure, because letters are pretty easy to serve up, just being slice along the way. If I were you, I would set the pan up for the letter, and get a linear measurement along each section of the letter (for instance the L will be 14" up one side, 2" wide, so if you cut that into 1" slices, that's 14 servings up the vertical of the L, and another 6 1" servings from the horizontal (starting from where it meets the vertical)
Thank for the advice! You know, now that you spelled it all out for me (no pun intended), I think I can draw it out on paper to get a good idea on servings even before I receive the pan.
Yeah, the pan looks cool! Hopefully it works!! I can't figure out in my head how a Z is going to work with all those diagonals! When I draw it out tonight I'll figure it out
Even without going to all the trouble of drawing it out, each of the blocks is 2'x2", right? So that would make each block = 2 1"slices, so if you just count how many "blocks" each letter will include x2, there you go
I'll let you know how it works out! I've been buying number pans as needed (I have 3, 5 & 6), but they are small (about 7-8" tall). This would work much better.
I am not much of a free-handed number or letter carver!!! This better work for me
