Good Morning all!

I am making a red velvet cake tonight and it's my first paid cake for her valentines day dinner on saturday...I bought a 12 x2" pan (only 1), I thought buying two may be too much. So I am thinking of course to tort and filling nice and high with cream cheese frosting in the middle to give it height. If that's not a good idea, I have two 10" pans that I normall use.

My second question is can I color cream cheese frosting?

And last but not least, how much should I charge for the heart shaped cake or the 10" (stacked) cake?

Please any replies would be greatly appreciated, I am making this cake as soon as I get off of work...

Even with the max amount of filling you could put in between the torted layers of cake, one 2" high cake is still going to look pretty short. You need two layers (two 2" cakes) in order for the cake to look right.

Yes, you can color cream chese icing.

Sorry, no advice on pricing.

How many servings did she want? Did you already agree upon a cake size? Why can't you just do two batches of red velvet cake and bake twice if you only have one pan?
