I have recently turned my cake decorating hobby into a business. The third order I got is a playstation cake. And Im a little nervous about it. Can anyone pls tell me what cake pan sizes should be good enough for this?

Also, pls give me any ideas, suggestions, advice that you think will help me in this. Its for a birthday boy who is turning 11.

Thank You!
LL

It depends on how many servings you are going to need. If you only need 20-25 I would suggest using a 1/4 sheet cake. If you need more servings than that you could use a 1/2 sheet cake, but you would have to make the controller and game be proportionate to the size of the cake so it does not look funny. I think a 1/4 sheet would be more realistic looking.

I made a PS3 launch cake for Netflix. I used a half sheet pan for the cakes and carved it. The controller was made of rice crispy treats. I covered the shape with melted chocolate and then fondant,
