Has anyone ever done a miniature replica of a cake before doing the actual party/wedding cake just to make sure it looks nice. Because sometimes you have something in mind, but then once is done it turned out to be a horrible Idea?
I've heard of lots of people making "practice cakes" before the "real" one. I know I would because I am not that experienced yet. Maybe it wouldn't have to be the full # of layers, just a couple to get the general idea.Whatever you decide, good luck! HTH
When I was first starting in the wedding cake business, I did that a couple of times, just helped me be more confident in the design of it.
That's why I'm up to my eyeballs in dummies! (cake dummies, that is ) I have multiples in various shapes and sizes.
Before my first wedding cake, I decorated 3 tiers, just so I could see how I needed to space the piped decorations on each size tier!
I'm going to make a 6" practice tier before the wedding cake I'm making for a friend in July, just to be sure that I can do the design we've chosen.
