You can use any sheet cake size pan depending on how many servings you want.
Just cut a very narrow v in the center to make the legs. Shave off a bit on each side to make the waist.
That cake can be mixed w/b'cream into a 'putty' that will make the 'rump' bumps icon_smile.gif
Just let us know what else you need to know.

Yep - I agree with Kakeladi. Just take a sheet cake and carve the legs out. I would make a smaller sheet cake and put it where the rump goes and then carve it. But that's just me.

Make a sheet cake. Draw a template out on some poster board and then cut it out-lay it over the sheet cake and trim it.
For the details on the pockets, you can buy a little stitching tool at the fabric store for about $3-it makes a huge difference in the quality of your cake to have little details like that.
Good luck!

Thank you all so much..
Kakeladi you make it sound sooooooo simple.
One more question Do you have any ideas for cupcakes to go with this?

You could spell their names with the cupcakes. Like put one letter on each cupcake. Or you could put some other clothing items on the cupcakes like shirts, shorts, shoes, necklaces, etc.

These are great jeans!! I think I have seen a cake pan like this somewhere, I'm sorry but I don't know if it was Michael's or somewhere else. If you use a sheet pan taper in a little at the waist so it doesn't look to straight and fake. Good luck. Does anyone know if this is disco dust in this picture??? Just curious, looks great!

i would say make some simple fondant rivets and maybe if you could put there names or initials on them it would tie in to the theme of the cake nicely

Maybe you can put a little fondant pocket on each cupcake?
