I would like to do one of those slice missing cakes-Can't wait! I had a few questions about them though.
~Is it best to do a 2 or 3 layer cake for this?
~Is it best to use a pound cake for this?
~Does the slice on top need to be supported by dowels?

Thanks so much for your help!!

Do you mean one of those cakes where a slice of the cake is sitting on top of the cake itself?

sweetmelissa....the slice missing cake is a cake cut with a slice out and decorated...hard to explain but if you go to the gallery...all the way down the first page is the miscellaneous section...under other....thats a slice missing cake.

And sorry trista never made one before but I think they are so cute. If you get it done please post pics

I like a nice tall cake for this, so I think you want it 4" tall as a minimum (5" looks even better). Pound cake will work, but isn't necessary... anything you would use for a stacked cake is fine. I do use dowels under the slice, since it is essentially just a small top tier, but obviously you only need 2 or 3, depending on the size of the slice. Bubble tea straws would work fine as well.
