I've been asked to do a small tiered cake. Basically, a cake with a serving size of about 8. The little boy would love a three tiered cake. I am also doing this cake for a friend so it's free. :) So, I'm looking to do it as cheaply (and easily) as possible. I'd rather not use dummies because it'll still be a pretty big end result (and more fondant, etc.)
So... is it possible (and feasible) to bake say, square cakes and cut the shapes out of those to stack and tier? Or am I just asking for a disaster? :)
Thanks for any tips, advice, etc! :)
very possible its the same as staking regular uncut cakes. just assemble as you would a regularr tiered cake and secure witha wooden dowl in the middle.
You could use a cupcake as the top tier?
make a 6" cake, and then a 4" and put a cupcake on top! (2" ) Make each single layer, the 6" single will serve 6, the 4", about 3, and the cupcake 1, for a total of 10.
If you don'y have a 4" pan, cook it in a large soup can.
I one time did a 6 inch cake with a 4 inch on top and it was SO cute and tiny. I like the idea of the cupcake on top like Annabakes suggested.
AWhat I have done in the past is just bake one cake 9x13 then use different size cookie cutters to cut out whatever size I needed, it worked really well. Hope this helps
I have used round cutters to cut out the smaller cakes out of one larger cake . I love mini cakes made like their bigger counterparts .
