I really want to try a slice cake for my daughter's Fancy Nancy party. Has anyone done one? Can you give me some tips? I have seen several nice photos in the gallery, but I am nervous about attempting to do it for the first time. Please share!

Here's another bump, as I'm not sure what a slice cake is!

I haven't done a slice cake, so I can't give any advice or tips. However, you should try PM'ing a couple of the decorators who have slice cakes in the gallery and asking if they have any tips.

I think a slice cake is a cake with a slice taken out and placed on top. The cut edges are decorated to look like cut edges, if that makes any sense. (Probably not--it's 3 a.m. and I've been up since 7 a.m!)

We did one of these - it is VERY simple. I would only say that you should put a little triangle shaped board under the slice and one little dowel under the larger end of the slice. It keeps the slice part more even and straight. Have fun! If I can answer anything else just ask!!!
