Can anyone tell me how to do a pattern for a cut out of a school bus on a 12x18 sheet cake. Doesn't need to be 3D. Just the side shape of the bus with tires. Need to have this cake done for fri at 6. thanks. never did this before but didn't want to turn down the opportunity for the experience.

take the the 12x18 and cut in half into 2 12x9 pieces

lay end to end to get a 9x24 long cake.

then apply template below.

note the red oval over the hood -- that's the two wheel bottom halves. cut out the oval and then cut in half to add to cake.

use scraps to build out the various bumps (bumpers, lights, etc.)

Thank you so much Doug. That was a big help. Never would have thought to do that on my own. It makes so much sense. I appreciate you taking the time to answer.
