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.

How absolutely adorable - Luv it - it's a fav. P.T.

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!

This is delightful and it's kind of neat to have the slice lying down. Terrific job!

Very cute....I have seen the others are talking about. Your version is very nice too! Makes me want to try my hand at it too!

Your version is stunning! I like the idea of the slice on its side! Great job!

LittleLinda Says... 8 years ago

That is such a clever idea! How did you get that sharp "cutoff" of the border on the wedge sliced out?

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

moonlightschild Says... 7 years ago

when you mean chilled...do you mean frozen or just in the refridgerator for an extended period of time?

ailika Says... 7 years ago

It's Beautiful just the way it is! :)

GI Says... 7 years ago

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!

GI Says... 7 years ago

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

antonia74 Says... 7 years ago

GI, the cake was a 10" round cake that was a thick triple-layer of 6" in height.
