Does anyone know how tocarve a number 3 out of a rectangular cake tin??
You could print the number "3" in the largest font you have on your computer. You will probably then need to enlarge the picture from a copy machine. (I have a printer/fax/copier). Once you get it the size you are happy with, cut it out then place on the cake. Use a sarated knife and cut.
When I do my number cakes, I take a writting tip #1 or 2 and I outline the cake in the # that I am doing in white icing and then I cut on the outline.. Works everytime and if you mess up or don't like the way it looks, just spread the frosting on the cake and start over.. Your covering the cake anyway, so no one can see it..
Just make sure the cake is nice and cold before you carve it.. That helps so much!!!
