Have any of you made a sheet cake with an smaller round tier on top?
Wondering what your thoughts on it was?? Pictures??
I think it would look just perfect set for a Walmart wedding where they get married among the flowers in plastic pots and price tags in Lawn and Garden.
Here is one I saw on the internet. You did not specify whether this is for a birthday or wedding cake.
Perhaps I should specify... I don't know if I've ever made one for a birthday, but I've made many for weddings for the budget reason I've previously mentioned.
I think they are cute when decorated nicely!!!
AIts for someone turning 91. this was requested. Just wondering. Thanks for the input.
AI have also made one for a 80 yr old and it was also decorated nice that way the birthday person has a small cake to take home:)
This may not help much since yours is a birthday cake. I'd never seen that done before this cake. (A small tier on a sheet cake.) It's not my style but when I complimented the lady that made it I was sincere. I think she did a fine job. People like different things. I personally think it's a bit crass to put down this style of cake. This was made with love by a dear friend of a dear friend for a (coming) grandbaby's shower. To each their own. :)
The more I think about it, the more I like the idea of sending the person of honor home with their own little tier. That's clever! (I don't get out much hehe.)
AI have done one cake this way. It was for a company grand opening cake. The smaller top cake was covered with an icing picture of the company logo.
AWOW Haven't seen a cake like that before. Not sure how I feel about that look. Definitely looks " homemade" .
I did a sheet cake with double heart cakes on it for an anniversary party. It was my first time putting fondant on the heart cakes and I did not really like the way it turned out. Everybody else loved it. I needed to do more work on the hearts to define them. It should be in my pictures.
I appreciate the pictures and feedback.
I don't really see any difference if it is a sheet cake or a square cake on the bottom. It is simply a shape. It all depends on how it is decorated. A stacked round cake can look tacky if not done correctly!
I like the baby cake. It is cute.
Yes, I did them frequently for low-income brides and to kick up birthday cakes. As stated earlier, when decorated right, they can be beautiful.
My favorite was the one I made for my in-laws anniversary. Hubby committed me to making one before he realized I already had 3 wedding cakes and 2 caterings that weekend, so all I could do was throw together a sheet cake with a 6" tier for him to take with him to their celebration. MIL loved it .... they never had a wedding cake when they got married and in her eyes, this was the most beautiful cake ever made for her.
Never overlook the value as seen in the eyes of the receiver. :-)
I didn't think this would work untill I saw this pic. Now I'm thinking;
1) an 8'' upper
2) put the upper on pillers
3) MUST the upper be round? a square could look better maybe? Esp. if it's angled
4) I LOVE the idea of the take-home cake!
