Bake a cake (either mix or from scratch) in an 11x15 inch pan. This size requires 2 cake mixes to fill. Invert onto cardboard or plastic cake board immediately after baking.
Icing can be made by the Decorator's recipe (1 bag powdered sugar, 1 cup Crisco (do not substitute), 2 drops Butter flavoring and a very small amount of water (less than 1/4 cup) OR you can buy Ready-to-spread Vanilla icing and stiffen with powdered sugar for decorating. Spread the sides with icing leaving the top undecorated. Decide on the colors you want to use. Mix your colors in separate bowls using food colors. You're ready to decorate!
Great Job. Very talented!
Thank you for saying not to substitute Crisco. I did once when I was making a wedding cake--BIG mistake.
