Number cakes are layer cakes that are cut into the shape of a number (or letter!). After a sheet cake is baked, a paper template is placed on top to get the proper shape desired.
The cut cakes are filled with frostings or pastry cream and then stacked. The tops can be decorated with piped designs, or various candies, cookies, or flowers.
Here's a video tutorial on how I made a lemon blueberry number 2 cake, and the templates you can use are located below.
