I have a wedding cake that I will be doing for an April wedding. My question is -- How many cakes do I need to make? She is going to have white cake on the bottom and top layer and a lemon cake in the middle. What I'm not sure about is should I make two recipes of each flavor for them to choose from or just one recipe for each flavor? I will also be doing the groom's cake that will be at the tasting. So do I need to make 6 cakes or 3?
I'm bumping myself up because I'm supposed to talk with bride today.
I would say pick your favorite and just do 3. They probably would't be able to choose anyway. Make a small sheetcake or cupcakes of each flavor and then freeze the rest. Hope this helps.
There have been a couple of good threads about tastings recently if you do a search.
3 should be fine-one of each.
I would make only 3, If you give them to many choices it will just make it confussing to both you and the bride.
Thanks everybody. I will make one of each.
I make white, choc and red velvet for my samplings. I tell them "My lemon cake will taste just as good as my white except it will taste like lemon."
Does anyone offer a palette cleanser to have in between cake flavors?
If you mean bottles of water, yes, I do.
Water works for me! I'll have a pot of coffee made also. The mothers and I think one grandmother is coming. Sometimes people, especially the older generation, like coffee with sweets.
