If a couple has both a groom's cake and a wedding cake, do you include the groom's cake when you calculate the number of servings for the wedding cake?
For 100 guests, does the wedding cake serve all 100 guests with the groom's cake being extra? Or are the cakes combined in calculating the number of servings?
I hope this makes sense.
It's their decision. You ask them at the consult or call them back & ask. If they have a fixed budget of $X amount then that's your answer. Otherwise just ask if they want the bride's cake at 100 servings with the groom's in addition to that or 100 total servings for both.
And if you already priced it at 100 servings and they decide they want 100 on the bride and the groom's in addition to that don't hesitate to jack up the price accordingly.
I combine the two cakes to get the total number of servings they need.
I do as K8memphis. You have to ask and be sure and deal with the price accordingly.
Thanks so much.
ditto costume. There's no reason to sell them more cake than they need. Just gets you a bad rep.
I give my brides the option, just like whether they want to include the top tier in servings or keep it. Some brides want the cake to be a certain size and don't want to include the groom's cake in servings. For brides on a budget, we will include it. It all depends on what the bride wants to do - it's her call.
