Hi, everyone. I am new to cake making--I am making a cake for my office Christmas party, and it will be my eigth cake ever. I am enjoying the practice, making lots of mistakes, but learning each time.

My first cake was a carved snake cake made for my son's reptile birthday. I found it easy to serve, as it was flat and could just be cut in sections.

However, for this cake, I would like the construction to be similar to this one I found in the galleries. It looked like the bottom would be cut topsy-turvy style with maybe one slanted layer on top. Any suggestions as far as pan sizes, number of layers, etc.?

Also, I don't really know how to deconstruct this for serving?

I would appreciate any help I can get! icon_smile.gif

You need to know how many servings you need to know what pan sizes you need.

Yeah, the serving size doesn't really matter. It is just for my party, and it is pot-luck, so there will be other cakes and desserts there, etc.

Try sending a PM to the person who created the cake. He/she will be able to help you better, since he/she already has the 'knowledge you seek'.

If the servings don't matter then use whatever pans you like.
