I have been out of the cake loop for a while, just taking a break, but I have been asked something that I cant turn down.

A GIANT Lobster cake to feed 500 people for the local lobster feast next weekend.

I need help from all you cake geniuses out there with how to build/carve this cake and make sure I have enough servings.

Can anyone help? Doug? lol

Personally, I'd plan on doing a bunch of sheets cakes in addition to a large lobster cake, beause you're going to have a tremendous amount of waste if you try to carve a giant cake to feed 500! Not to mention how you're going to carry and transport such a beast...

How big do they want this cake to be? Are there any guidelines? If not, I'd do cake for about 200 for the lobster, and just do sheets for the rest.

That would be a huge cake. I can just imagine that it would be the size of an alligator. My only suggestion is to use a dense cake such as a pound cake. I also think that you should use RKT for some of the parts. Of course an airbrush would come handy on this one, as well as wires. Just make sure no one eats the wired parts.

I probably didn't help you but good luck =]

The cake was 5 feet long, 3 feet wide and the highest point was 14 inches tall... and it felt like it weighed about 250lbs... I had to get 2 big boys to move it for me.

The only bad part about making this cake was that I had to build it in pieces and assemble it on site because it was too big to transport in one piece.
