Cake With Slice Missing

Thanks to Suebee, Cambo, Pinkbunny and Psurrette for posting their versions of this style of "trompe l'oeil" cake. I loved them all and thought I'd try my hand at something fun. The client gave me the floral design to copy somewhere on a cake, so I did it as the side pattern and wowed him with the rest.

One thing I couldn't do was to put my slice standing up. The cake itself was already 6" tall, so it was too delicate to have another 6" standing on top....so I laid it on it's side instead.

Ice the cake normally, chill it well, cut out a slice and then ice all the bare cake to mimic the layered cake look. It's actually very easy!

Thanks everyone!! I chilled the cake fully iced, then sliced the piece out. Worked beautifully! The banner is gumpaste, yes, with royal icing writing.

Very nice. I followed a thread on these slice of cake. I like your idea to lay it down on its side. What size pan did you use for this one? It does indeed look tall!

Oo's, I meant what size around pan ( :oops: ) I am assuminga 6" cakepan was used. Thanks!
