Hi Everyone, I was asked to make a cake for a friend, she wants the NY Mets baseball teams Home run apple. (I will try and uplong a pic) My problem is : the cake is for 40 people and I don't know how much cake to make. I was just going to make the hat cake, and the apple rice cripsy treats. Do you think this will be enough. btw I would use a 10 in. round for the hat..Thanks so much in advance for Any Help!!
10" round should serve 42 (1"X2") Slices
21 (2"X2") Slices
It depends on how big you want the slices to be.
do you think I should me 2 10in. double layer cakes, with a board inthe middle or is that way to much. I'm so afraid there wont be enough. I won't be there to cut it. Thanks again for the Help!
Well, just throwing in my opinion here.
I just cut up a practice 8 inch the other day, using IndyDebi's cutting guide, and I got 22 servings. Those were 1"X2". The slices looked plenty big to me, but I think some hardcore cake fans out there could eat a couple of them.
Any reason why you don't want to make the apple out of cake too? Perhaps a 10" double layer with an apple carved from an 8" would be enough.
I would use this chart: http://www.wilton.com/cakes/making-cakes/baking-party-cake-2-inch-pans.cfm . That is for party sized servings, you can check out the wedding cake chart if you want to serve smaller pieces of cake.
Thank you all very much! I think I'm going to have to make the apple out of cake as well.. I thought it would be easier with RCT , I've never carved a cake that much, never time like the presant to learn..lol..
