This cake is meant only for cutting to put in boxes.
But I still would like it to look nice.
I think presentation is very important.
Any simple but nice ideas???

sort of the same as the 'real' cake i think - so same height, same fillings, same colours, same coating. just less of the work, no flowers.

I agree with brincess b. Nothing to fancy because only the cutters/staff will see the sheet cake.

the middle of kitchen cake should be the same as the middle of the 'real' cake. so whatever filling it has, the kitchen cake has.
and if the real cake has fondant, so does the kitcen cake.

can mark your sheet into sqs and put a rose bud on each one. I use tip 63 (it's not a common one and would need to be ordered from Wilton or found in a cake supply shop - not Michael's or HL) to make a shell, then add tip 350 leaves on each side.
If you have a mold to make a small, flat rose you could use that. There is a Sculpty, (polymar clay) push mold that makes a 1" round flat rose.

I think sheet cakes, kitchen cakes, look and serve really nice if you score it for the number of servings and add a tiny rosebud, or something to go with the theme, on each square of cake. If only the servers are going to see the full cake, then this makes a cute decoration on each piece being served. Keep it simple and it takes only a few minutes with very pleasing results. I also do not add a border around the edge as this makes some pieces different from others.
