How to Make a Number Six Cake


Number cakes are ideal for celebrating milestone occasions. They are perfect for kids' birthday parties and can be assembled from round and rectangle shaped cakes. Make a number six cake from a round cake and a loaf cake. Make sure to place number cakes on a sturdy base so that they do not move around or slide off. Fill the cakes before assembling them so that they do not shift in position. It is a good idea to refrigerate the cake after filling it so that the filling does not ooze out and has time to set before frosting the cake.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 8-inch round cake, baked and cooled completely
  • 1 8-by-4-inch loaf cake, baked and cooled completely
  • Filling
  • Cake board
  • Knife
  • Empty soup can
  • 3 cups frosting in color of your choice
  • Spatula
  • M&M's or Skittles candy
  • Place round cake on a cake board and attach it to the board with a smear of frosting. Place the soup can in the middle of the cake and press it down to remove a round circle from the cake. Slice the cake horizontally and fill it with your choice of filling.

  • Slice a triangle-shaped piece from one corner of the loaf cake to make the top part of the number six. Place it on top of the round cake in a diagonal position and check to see if the cake resembles the number six. Trim the loaf cake to attach it properly to the round cake, if desired.

  • Spread frosting on the entire cake to make it look like one piece. Refrigerate the cake for 15 to 20 minutes to allow the frosting to set.

  • Apply a second layer of frosting on the cake, smoothing it well. Pipe a border on the perimeter of the cake, if desired.

  • Place candy pieces on the top and sides of the cake. Add a birthday message, if desired.
