I made this cake for a friend who specifically asked for "just" a sheet cake (this may have been my first)....
I tried to make it pretty, but I think I will talk them out of it next time...It felt very strange working within those dimensions...I know it kinda sounds dramatic... icon_rolleyes.gif

dimensions (as requested): 11 x 15
fondant covered & flowers & stuff
bow has couple's names on it...used edible images
royal piping

Irene, since when do you do anything "plain"?

That is a beautiful cake. I cannot believe that it might be your first sheet cake. You astound me.

Hey, are you going to the FCI for the grapefruit thing on Saturday? I am registered, and will definitely be there.

That's an absolutely gorgeous "plain" sheet cake. icon_biggrin.gif

If that's what plain is, I'm going to have to come up with a new adjective to describe my plain sheet cakes. Yours is fabulous.

Hi guys!! Thank you so much!! I guess by plain I mean it wasn't stacked, shaped, or carved....my little hands need to work work work!!! The more I look at it now, though, the more I like it! It actually was a bit of a relief to get off without doweling and stuff for a change! Thanks to all of you!

Haven't you figured it out yet? You are "the friend" that everyone goes to for cakes, just like Irene is where she lives, just like I am where I live.

Irene, enlighten me, where would you even put a ribbon around the bottom? Would you put it on, then pipe over it?
