Hi Everyone, HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!! icon_redface.gif
I was ask to make my first wedding cake today, I'm little nervous. Where do I start. Its in Dec and she wants round. She's a friend at my work and how much should I charge and its for about 200 people. Do I make the cake for 200 people or less? What size for the cake? Any suggestion?

Thanks!

Congrats! That is a big order. Do you have any information on what style she would like? Yes you woudl make enough cake to feed 200. The pricing will depend on how she wants it decorated etc. Are you doing it in buttercream or fondant? If you go to the wilton website there are charts showing different tiered cakes and the amount of servings. I am sure everyone here at cc will help you along the way.
