I need some help! I'm making a cake for my Dad's birthday party on the 27th. I wanted to do a Pop Tart cake. He adores them and eats them almost constantly. Any ideas on how to pull this off? I was thinking of using 9 X 13 pans. I was hoping to make it look like one laying on top of another, kinda of like a hand of cards, just two Pop Tarts instead. I was going to try to make it look like a bite was taken out so you could see the filling. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

I think this is an adorable cake idea. I would do single layer cakes ( no more than 2 inches high each) because if you do a full double layer that is 4 inches it will look like a box of pop tarts.
As long as you keep them thin and taper the edges around I think you've got a pretty straight forward cake on your hands. Base coat would be kind of a light brown, top would be frosted in white BC or white fondant and then if he does a flavor, maybe some sprinkles.

I just had an image come to mind. How many people do you need to feel...because you could do a double layer as the box and have a 1 inch layer kind of hanging out the top at an angle that is the pop tart with a bite out of it.

I think you will be able to pull this off if you just get your proportions right (meaning width vs height of the pop tart.)
Good luck.

The cake needs to feed 20-25 people. I was going to do peanut butter WASC with chocolate SMBC covered in fondant.

Ok then doing the box idea is way too much cakeicon_smile.gif I think baking two layers, putting a cake board on under each and then just placing the second on top of the first kind of at an angle should work fine for you.
