Hi there everyone!! hope all is well! I need some help with a cake. I'm making a Canada Day cake , that's upcoming, but I wanted to make it the shape of the flag, however I don't own the "flag pan" Is there a way or shall I say a fool proof way to achieve the look of a waving flag? I know by carving, but I don't want to go ahead and carve and have it "uneven" so to speak. the cake pan is 9"x13" I intend to use.

Here's what I made using 2 layer cakes baked in a 9x13x2" pan. I used a Wilton flat, 14x20" cookie sheet as my "cake lifter" to get the second layer on after I applied the dam and the filling. Then I just carved out the waving part.

I made a paper template of the shape I wanted first, then laid it on the stacked/filled tier and used the template as my guide.

The flagpole is a plastic dowel from Wilton covered with fondant. I cut out a "notch" (about 1/2" x 1/2") before I covered the cake with fondant. I used toothpicks stuck in underneath the flagpole at an angle to support the weight of the flagpole. Then I used buttercream to cover the toothpicks. Then I used silver highlighter dust diluted with vodka to paint the flagpole.

Two layer carved sheet cake. White Almond Sour Cream with raspberry filling. Fondant icing and decorations.
