I was asked to make a cake for an 80th BD its probably going to be 2 11x15 but will i have to have stacked 2 high so i would have to make 4 all together or will one level 11x15 work? Also how much would you charge for a cake of that size? Any help or advice I would really appreciate. Just starting out and want to make great impressions so i can get more offers. I do it more for fun. You can see the cakes i have done in my photos.. icon_smile.gif

My graduation cakes in my pics are 11 x 15 2 layer to give you an idea of what it looks like versus a single layer. That would give you I think 44 servings for just one double layerd cake. I charge 2.75 per serving.

Thank you. Would you suggest that i should do 2 layer cakes so theres more servings or should i do single layer but make a couple cakes. still not sure how many servings they are going to need. Also anybody know how to do the fillings? icon_redface.gif

I think 2 layer sheets look better than single layer.

Bake 2 - 11x15 sheets. Crumbcoat, frost, and fill as you like. This serves 50 generous slices, sixty if you stick to a cutting guide. No dowels necessary. Use foil covered foam core board instead of cardboard. It is much sturdier.
