hi all. Want to make my daughter a similar cake as shown on CC. It is a magic themed cake. My daughter wants a magic briefcase with a box on top and then a magic hat on top of the box. I pm'd the artist of that cake but havent heard back. I was planning on using a Wilton 11x15x2 rectangle for the base briefcase figuring a full sheet was too big for a party of 15 girls. I am having trouble figuring out the size of the square that would go on top at an angle. Does a 10 " square sound right? Thanks for your help! I don't know why I always have trouble picturing and estimating sizes!
Can you link to the picture of the cake that you liked?
How do I do that?
I think a 10in square would work, but I think a 9 inch square would fit a little better. If it were me, I would go with the 9 inch unless you already had a 10in square pan, I don't think it's a big enough difference to invest in another pan
Thanks! I think u r right. Do u think the cake would be weird if i just did the briefcase with the pillow on top and then hat instead of the box? Would u use a 9" for the pillow too or 10" because of the trimming that needs to be done? Thanks!
Sorry, I didn't get a notification. I think the cake would be fine without the box, and I would go with the 10in to accommodate the trimming like you said.
