So, I’m not big on sheet cakes. Let’s be honest. They aren’t the best way to showcase a beautiful cake design. But when done well, they are definitely a great option for an easy to cut and serve cake for a large group.
To make it especially easy, sometimes they are scored. This is a very easy technique. Let me show ya how…
First, ice the cake and scrape it smooth.
Then, using a CLEAN yard stick (I have one specifically for cakes. Let’s not get grody, people) make a small hash mark every two inches of each cake edge.
Then, gently roll your yardstick across the hash marks. Make sure the yardstick touches the icing as it rolls across the surface. It will ever so slightly pick up a line of icing off the cake.
That’s all there is to it!
Now you can fill in each square with the decor of your choosing. For this one, it was fondant music notes and butter cream rosebuds.
Whoops, missed a spot.
There, that’s better.
Happy Decorating, friends.
