What size? Do you mean petit fours?

  • Use a long, straight-edged, sharp knife.
  • Wipe down blade between cuts.
  • Trim all edges before cutting pieces.
  • Use a ruler or tape measure for equal-sized pieces.

No way man, I'd buy a Squires pan, those pans that bake individual squares. That way they keep the tight crust on the edges.

The OP needs 150 cake squares. Icing a sheet cake then cutting into squares is less labor than baking little individual cakes and icing each damn one. In my very humble opinion. :wink:

Mimi I'll bet you've done this a thousand times!

 

OP If this is something that you may do often, there are also cutting guides for sheet cakes that put an imprint of the lines on the top of the icing, so you could save the measuring time.

 

Look for "K & S quick press markers"
