Also, how much would you charge for it. She called me at 4:45 this afternoon and wants it tomorrow. I know it's a small cake but still it's my time...

thats a pretty big smash cake, is she using it for one of those photo shoots. i usually just do a one layer 4 " cake.
I'd probably charge $20 for the size your doing with simple decoration.

I use a half cake mix. 1 1/2 cups of the mix, cut the water and oil in half, and just use one egg.

I do not charge for a smash cake when making a cake for the party. I sounds odd to me that they want JUST a smash cake and not a cake for the party guests!

Sorry, I don't have any recipes to give you that would yield a small amount of cake. Could you just use a reg. recipe, make the 2- 6" layers, then bake the rest of the batter into cupcakes & freeze them?

By the time you read this, you'll probably already have figured something out! thumbs_up.gif

I offer a complimentary 2 layer 4" Smash cake, simple decorations to coordinate w/ main First Birthday cake. But if a customer wants an extra one, the price is $6.

thanks guys I know have an idea on what to charge her. I was thinking around $10 or $20 because of the short notice. The cake is for his 1st Birthday photos. I made 6"x4" yellow. I had to make it from scratch because I didn't have a box. I covered it in that ALL BUTTER BUTTERCREAM recipe on here. I cut out his name in fondant and put on the side and then toped the cake with the rest of the icing in a big swirly swirl icon_biggrin.gif (kinda like a cupcake) and put fondant "sprinkles" in differ sizes on it. I also made a fondant "1" to put on top. THANKS AGAIN!!
