I need to design a cake much like this one for a groom's cake. Not quite sure on the serving amounts for this cake yet, (haven't been told yet, the guy just said he wanted this as a grooms cake). I can figure out the pan sizes I need to bake when I get the servings, just need to know what shapes I should start with.


TIA

I think I would make a nice thick square, cut corners and round down the sides. If you have a mini loaf pan I think 1 of those cut from top to bottom would make a nice "band" for the top and bottom, it looks like the face is just very thick fondant.

diagram shows shape cut from an 11x18 (to scale)

to get the height would be TWO 11x18s, stacked (torted too if so desire) and the also carved to get profile of cake.

Okay, Doug, did you just draw that off the top of your head, did you have it tucked away somewhere, or what? I am amazed, awed and blown away by your genius!
