There is alot to creating a cake. Way more than can be taught in a few post responses. I think your best bet would be to google info you are looking for, there are alot of videos on you tube on cake construction and beginning decorating. By searching and reading you can get a general idea and then ask specific questions here at CC and I am sure you will get plenty of great replies.

Best of luck and happy caking!

Bake 2 square or rectangular layers and cut the number 1 out of them. The best way is to print a 1 the same height as your pan and as thick(boldest type) as possible.
Stack the #1's. I would recommend using buttercream for the filling and for the Coat the layers with a thin coating of buttercream and cover with fondant.
