A Giant ‘Slice of Cake’ Tutorial

When it comes to a slice of cake just how big a piece is your perfect amount? If you are thinking of making someone a birthday cake, why not make them one giant slice of cake!

For this weeks video tutorial and the first one of 2019 I really wanted to create a fun cake, and if you are anything like me and have over indulged a little over Christmas then just a ‘slice of cake’ would be perfect.


The thing I love most about this cake is that it can be made in any size. I made one large 11 inch vanilla sponge cake and divided it up into 5 equal pieces (72° for each piece) and stacked these to make my cake, but you could make it alot smaller and use it as a cake topper or cut a slice out of a full cake and decorate each part so you also have the rest of the cake aswell.

I really wanted to make the cake look cartoony, but slightly realistic at the same time, so I used bold colours but added details to the side of the cake to give it that crumb texture of a baked cake. It really started to come alive when I added the petal dust to the side using a combination of the Sugarflair cream and buttermilk.

This was such a fun cake to make and I think my favourite thing is the candle. I love that by entwining 2 differnt colours of fondant and rolling them together you get this pretty stripped effect and nothing says birthday cake like a flaming candle on the top.

So if you would like to see exactly how I made all the elements and put the cake together click the video tutorial below. I had so much fun creating this cake, and I hope you will enjoy making your own slice of cake!
