caterer wants 100 pieces of cake.

hubby has worked catering jobs before and he says he's seen caterers do it this way (which seems like a lot of work)

score iced sheet cake
when you cut the first row, take it off the board transfer to another row. BEFORE cutting the next row of pieces, ICE the exposed part, then cut the row transfer, repeat.

Anyone have any experience? I don't think its necessary to keep icing the *back* of it. What do you think?

seems like the caterers he's seen do it don't know what they're doing. Around here i've never seen that done. They cut the cake they're givin. yes the outside pieces have more icing, but some people like that, and others don't.

think we can safely agree those other caterers are nuts! present it the same way as any other cake - just on the plate, the way it comes cut.

awesome...i just want to put a little decoration on each piece

now if they are serving themselves its still done that way correct?

give them an instruction sheet on hwo to cut cake - that way you know it serves 100 if cut correctly, and they have the evidence there too. if they are used to doing it another way, speak to them first.
