Let Them Eat Cake!

I had two cake orders due this weekend. The Spongebob was the first character cake pan I have ever done. After doing all the little stars I couldn't open my hand all the way. I had to massage it open! But it looked good and the lady I did it for gave me more than I was charging so it was a happy delivery!

This cake on the other hand was one of my own creations and I thought it was gorgeous, but when I dropped it off all the lady kept commenting on was how small the cake was. It's a standard 13X9' double layer sheet cake. Now I am totally paranoid and worried that she doesn't have enough cake. This is for a 4 year old's b-day party. Those little kids don't eat a lot of cake, right? Plus that rock Ariel is sitting on it nothing but cake! I really hope it is enough. Pray for me, and all those sugar deprived kiddies at tomorrow's party!

cute cakes!!! i think the reason she thought they were small is because if you get a sheet cake at the grocery store or Costco, it's 4 times the size of a 9x13, double layer. A 9x13 cake is actually a quarter sheet cake. If you buy a premade cake at the grocery store, it's usually a half sheet cake, double layer. So, she probably thought that the cake would be twice as big. You can buy half sheet cake pans from Wilton pretty inexpensively. If you are going to do this more than once or twice you should invest in a half sheet cake pan. Your cake turned out really well, though! It's adorable! I *attempted* Cinderella a couple of years ago. Never again! At least not out of a Funfetti cake mix... all the lines disappear, so it was pretty much freehand. not a pretty sight!
