You get a call for a wedding cake for approximately 150 people.
Do you add the top tier in or not?? I realize you have to charge for that tier in the total price of the cake, but I'm miffed about whether it is added in to the number of servings.
Please, any help would be greatly appreciated!!!! Thanks!
I ask the bride if she is going to save or serve the top tier. I still charge for it. If the bride is saving the top then I make another cake to make up for the servings that were in the top tier and of course charge for it too.
I'm not open for business yet, but I plan on offering a fresh anniversary tier. Most people around here don't do the freezing of the cake now.
I would just check with her and find out if she is wanting to save it.
I give the bride the choice .... keep and freeze or free one later. most go for the free one later. most wrinkle up their face and ask "why do you keep cake a year?" or "can you even eat cake that's a year old?"
I'm with indydebi, most of my brides choose the free one on their 1st anni.
We kept our top tier for a year without freezing it - it was a fruitcake I add before you wonder why I didn't end up in A and E! - and it was so beautiful at my daughters chrsitening.
As far as the original post is concerned, I think I go with all the others, ask the bride. If she intends to keep the top tier then it will leave her short of cake to feed everyone at the wedding.
most brides want to keep the top tier. i wouldn't count it in with the rest of the servings, but i would charge for it.
