I went to the site and was not successful in being able to pull them down. I know part of it is my lack of knowledge in what to do and part of it is lack of knowledge about my computer systems capabilities. But anyway I was wondering if I wrote you a message in your message box and gave you my personal email if you would send them to me that way? I know it is extra work, but would love to try to make some. Thank you so much.

If I tell me what "templates" are/do/look like, you might not even have to hoodwink me...


Just take a look at the ones in my photos.




Oh of course! Wow, you've posted such great ideas!! Once this wedding is over, I can maybe do some - I sure would enjoy it. My mom used to have a cake business and I loved the "puzzles" of figuring out how to cut the cake to make all kinds of stuff.

Sure, Jules, no problem. thumbs_up.gif

Thanks so much. I don't do many cakes, and only for family, friends, and the occassional for charity, so this will be helpful for my charity cakes!

Wow, genius!! I love it when the cake community comes up with really cool, genuinely unique stuff that we haven't seen anywhere else...HOW clever are YOU?!?! icon_smile.gif
I was wondering if it would be possible to make templates for Australian cake sizes and servings?

For example: 1.5" (w) x 3.5"(h) x 1" (L) and 1.5"(w) x 3.5" (h) x 2"(L)

A lot of the time our mud cakes are not torted and filled, so its just plain cake, with a 1/4" of ganache and a 1/4 - 1/2" of fondant...would it be a huge hassle for yout o make that sort of template, and if it is...could you instead explain how you would go about making that kind of cut out template?

I can't see either file on the first age. The first one says I need a password or something like that. And the second one says the photo does not exist. Is anybody else having the same problem?

Hmm, this link works for me: http://www.mediafire.com/?8a4iwqv2jba7tqc Is that the one asking you for a password?

And yes, the photo was removed from the gallery - but I can't get back into that message to remove the dead link...

I'm so glad you like them, Evoir. The next couple of days are very busy for me, but I can certainly make up some Aussie sizes once my event on Friday is over. So check back in a few days. icon_biggrin.gif

This link worked. Thank you.

I don't see why you can't add a photo under the templates section here on CC. I can never figure out what is acceptable here or not. But this seems very helpful to me.

I made some for myself using a giant yellow carwash sponge. Made all 3 sizes out of one sponge and used craft paint for icing and filling. They turned out ok.




Wow...these look almost good enough to eat icon_lol.gif

It occurred to me -- it's not just a different size. Technically, the picture should be different too, since it's not torted, etc. Is this what the inside should look like?

(I'm trying to attach a picture, but not sure if it'll work -- so in case it doesn't, it's just two cakes sitting one right on top of the other, and then I made the white "icing" edge thicker, about 1/2" instead of 1/4"... Yah?)

Schwammrs...its just solid cake - one 3.5" high tier, with the ganache and fondant on the outside.

I was hesitant to ask for more than one variation, but the only other type I do with my mud cakes, is two layers with ONE layer of filling in the middle. (much like a regular cake - but just one filling layer).

I feel guilty asking for all this...I am indebted to you. I hope I can repay you one day! At the very least we should get all the Aussies on board here downloading it and crediting YOU!!

These were shared at our cake club meeting a couple of months ago, and everyone went wild over them! Thank you so much for putting this "visual aid" together for everyone. I've seen your blog, and your multi-level talents seem boundless. I am in awe...

AI know this is old, but I wanted to thank you. These are awesome. I had someone cut me one to paint but they don't know how to measure. It was .75x1.5x4 1/8"
