I am trying to figure out how many servings are in a Bundt Cake . I have had a few requests for my pina-colada and Tiramisu cakes done as a bundt cake .
I use the Wilton Wedding serving chart for my cakes , so would 1" slices out of the circle of the bundt cake be about the same as a 1"X 2"X 4" slice of cake???? Or should I go bigger 1-1/2" , 2" ?????.......
I looked up a Bundt cake recipe and it said it yeilds 16 servings , does that sound right????
My base price for buttercream cakes is $3.00/ serving ... some of the bundt cakes would be covered in whipped buttercream and some would just have a glaze so would be $2.00/serving.
So at 16 servings a glazed bundt would be $32 and an iced bundt would be $48.. These would be undecorated except for a single gumpaste "signature" item, (not yet decided on what to use, flower,butterfly, etc. still playing with my cricut till I find "my" design hahhha...)
Does that price seem to high for a bundt cake.
(for comparison the country store by me sells a homebaked REGULAR berry or apple pie for $12 and I beleive those are 6 servings)
I could really use some help with this one.......
Thanks In advance
I can't help you with pricing but as for servings, I think a 1" slice of bundt cake seems right. I have a book with a bunch of bundt recipes and the servings usually are "16 to 24 depending on how you slice it." Some go 16 to 32 servings. I think the author based it on how rich/dense/sweet the cake was.
I hope that helps.
I think I am just going to go with a generic 16 servings per cake and a standard,
$29 to $39 (depending on ingredients).
I think 16 would be a little more generous serving than regular cake but since it doesnt have filling or a lot of icing it should even out.
Anyone have an opinion on the price?
I found a website , Nothing Bundt Cake. and that is about the same as thier prices.
