I have to make two full sheet graduation cakes. The first will be pretty simple as a typical grad cake but the second she wants it to have his passions on it. Which are a guitar, a bible and a Chipotle burrito if possible. I have MANY questions...this is my first full sheet there is a full sheet cake pan, if so, would it fit in a normal oven, or do you get two half and icing them together? if so, are there any tricks to make it go well together?

about the passions, so I make them flat and out of fondant or 3D out of fondant or edible image? if edible image, can any of you help me with that...know of a place I could order those images or a person? I am SO nervous.

I am making another full sheet cake for this persons church for another date and they want a world on it, I was thinking of baking a cake in a metal bowl partially and putting it on top of the sheet cake...should it be supported with dowels underneath?

Thanks so much to whoever can help me!

April :0)

I can't help you with everything but... I put two 11 x 15's together to make a fullsheet... a full sheet wouldn't fit into my oven.. most ovens I don't think unless it is commercial..

I reallly don't know about the incorporating a bible with a burrito.. I hope someone can help you out with that one..

You don't have to dowell anything unless it is over 3 layers so you should be fine there icon_smile.gif (unless the top layer is EXTREMELY heavy..

I hope this helps a little anyways
