Hi everyone! I’m new to this site and very excited that I even found it while searching.
I’m a novice baker. I wouldn’t even really call myself a baker. I love being in the kitchen whether I’m cooking dinner or making treats but I am no expert at any of them.
My son’s birthday party is in November and money has gotten very tight since adding a new addition to the family so I decided I am going to bake him his own sheet cake this year.
I’d like it to be a half sheet cake but am not sure how many boxes of mix I need. I have a few questions if y’all could help me, please, I would so much appreciate it!
1) How many boxes of mix?
2) Can I mix chocolate and white?
3) The idea is to have black, blue, and red or black, white, and red…so I was going to use at least 1 chocolate and 1 white and then some dye for the blue or red. Is that advisable? If so, is liquid food coloring ok or gel?
5) How can I get the cake to stand tall?
If I’m forgetting something that I obviously should know but don’t seem to by all means, please indulge me! I’m not always a quick thinker and forget the simplest of things.
Thank you everyone for your help!
