She wants a two tier cake to serve 9 people for her daughters first birthday.
I think she is going to be disappointed.
I think it would be a cute cake.
Cute and really really small!
As Indy always says, "The smaller cake, the higher price." Little fiddley things are always a PITA. But, for enough $$$ . . .
See both of my posts on this thread on a very similar topic:
I would do a 3" and 4" for her (3 servings and 6 servings) but then she wouldn't even want to hear what I would charge for it. My minimum would still be $50
I would say "sure...I can do a "mini" cake which runs about $50 depending on what you want on it."
Once she sees how much it costs she may not want it...OR she may think it's grand. I'm doing a dirt bike helmet in two weeks...size of the small ball pan...and I'm charging 75 (was hoping it would go away<G>....the woman didn't blink an eye. So you never know!
I tried to cover a four-inch tier in fondant and was pulling my hair out by the time I finished. I will NEVER do it again!
I have officially decided that my smallest tier will be 6-inch from now on so a cake that serves 9 doesn't exist in my world.
