I have been asked to do a TT for about 25-30 ppl. I dont know if this is even possible without it looking so funny!! I know that most TT are carved at the bottom. I was thinking of a 8 and 6 or a 7 and 5. Also, how do you determine how many serving you get once you carve the bottom?
Thanks Khalstead. That size does not look bad at all. I was wondering if you were basing it off the wilton serving chart or the earlenes?
nah, it's my own serving chart LOL
Wilton says a 7" will give you 18 servings (7x7x3=147 div. by 8 18.375 serv.)
wilton says a 5" will give you 9 servings. Basically I round wilton's chart down to the nearest 5 servings!
There is a little more cake because it's 3 layers high instead of 2, however people still cut them the same, the piece is just taller, so to compensate for the extra cake I charge a high per/serv. price for topsy turvy cakes!
Thanks...but do you subtract some of the servings since you carved the bottom down a size...or is that where you subtract 5 servings from the wilton...or do you always subtract 5 servings from the wilton regardless if its a TT or not??
Sorry so many questions
