I have a friend asking for a sweet 16 cake.. she knows I am a newbie.

But she asked me if I think I could make a 1 and a 6 shaped cake? I have seen the 1 pans but no 6 pans so how would I make a 6?

Print off a big 6 in Word and use it as a template to carve the cake.

I have a tabletop projector I bought at michaels 15 or so years ago and I use that to blow up numbers.

I place the numbers under the projector and turn off the lights. Then adjust it to the size I need projecting it onto a piece of poster paper I taped to the wall.

I usually guage the size by a 9x13 sheet pan. I bake two and cut the shapes of each number from each cake. so more or less each number is as tall as the pan is long.

I generally do what cheatize says. I print on cardstock, so I have something more stable, then carve around my cutout.

I now have numbers 0-9 cut and stored ready to use again. I dont want to redo them after I finally get the poster board cut out. After cutting the numbers I usually take a knife and cut out the shapes.
