I am making a pair of running shoes this weekend, the total servings need to be 30( 15 servings per shoe).
I am starting with a 1/2 sheet cake per shoe, cut, stacked and carved.
By my serving chart a 1/2 sheet serves 45-50, so 2 1/2 sheets should serve 100, so even with alot of carving I should still easliy end up with 30 servings?
I can't possibly carve more then 60 servings of cake off can I ?
Does that make sense?
3-D serving size are such a pain, any help is greatly apprecitated
I know what you mean...it's such a pain to try to figure out dimensional cake servings! In all the years of doing these 3-D cakes, I've never really had anyone complain about not having enough of cake. If they did-it was because they refused to cut it!
If I am imagining these shoes correctly, I think you will be fine to figure 15 servings per shoe.
Will be anxious to see the shoes when you are done!
I charge $4.00 a serving for 3D cakes in Buttercream.I would charge more for fondant covered!!
I think you'll be fine! It doesn't really take that much cake to serve 30. I almost always make my cakes too big, so I understand your anxiety! lol It's something I struggle with on nearly every shaped cake I make.
Can't wait to see the cake when you're done! I'd love to make running shoes. Sounds like a lot of fun!
