I was asked to do this cake. The girl wants it to feed 30-40 people. What size cake should I use? I'm thinking that I'll have to layer the cake for the height. I'm never sure how to estimate serving sizes when it's a carved cake. I've done carved cakes for family so I'm relatively comfortable with doing it, but this time, it's for an actual customer so I want to make sure I get it right.
Also...what would you suggest I charge for this cake? My prices are relatively low (from what I'm told) ($25 for an 8"round/$90 sheet cake/$2 slice for tiered)
Any suggestions is appreciated! TIA
To get enough servings, you could always put the fish on top of a quarter sheet cake.
Doy! That was smart! Thank you - I didn't even think of that! Some days...I don't know how I make it through the day!
I'm still thinking price though...would $125 be too much? It'd really be do cakes and a lot of fondant...oh, and a lot of work...
I did a fish cake and suggested a tackle box to get the servings. I charged $125...it's in my pics. They loved it!
wow, you do great work! I will suggest the tackle box too. Thanks for the tip. I'm thinking $125 is a good price.
