So I have a customer who wants there name carved out of cake but she wants it small, I haven't done that yet and was thinking if I do it too small ,might not come out right ,whats The smallest u think I could do this? She has already placed another order for a cake feeding about 75 (reason for this one being so small ) or what other suggestion could i give her to make her happy. P.s its for another family member ,so they can have something personalized.

Could you possibly use cookie cutters and cover them with chocolate or candy melts? That would be personal sized and personalized.

cookie cutters are a great idea. The wilton 101 cookie cutter set comes will all the letters , you could bake thin layers of cake cut out your letters and stack them to get whatever height you want..then frost and cover (if you want) with fondant or better yet, poured fondant.

or here is another can adjust the size of the letter to whatever size you want on your computer using Word.

I think I might just use poured fondant, will be alot easier if the letters are small.

happy caking
