Thanks for the info, it looks like Squires is the best best, very expensive though. The cake is for my sister so I would treat it as a gift to her. As its so expensive, how much would you charge for a cake like this (8"). Doesn't it put customers off buying it?

Lol, its ok icon_smile.gif And im not sure how it goes down on pricing, i mean, i had them on my wedding cake made by someone else (12 inch heart and 8 inch heart ) and the total for the cake was 450, but that included ALL decoration including flowers etc . . . . so mebbies some like her, charge a higher base price, but will cover them in all/most scenarios

personally, if it was me, and it was going to whack an extra 30 bob onto the price of a cake, id be problies go with a cheaper alternative . . I dont know if u have it in london, but in the north east weve got a shop called B&M and they sell chocolate wafter sticks . . . there like a wafer biscuit finger, but longer than cadburys fingers, covered in a 'wrap of chocolate' and there about 60p for a box of 20, in my opinion, a hell of alot cheaper and tasty too lol icon_smile.gif

I found another site called chocolate trading company which sells 500 g of cigarellos for £14.95. It states it contains 80 cigarellos but the chart is slightly different to that of yours. It states that for a 6" cake, I will need 65, for 8" cake I will need 84 but there is just 80 in the box. Do you think I can get away with using 80? Maybe the safest thing to do is make a 6 " cake.

Thanks, I have just seen it. Funny..when I looked the other day it wasn't there, I saw just the white ones. so shall I just do a 6" cake to be safe?

I would do 6" to be on the safe side. You can always save any left over for another cake or in my case excuse to eat some. icon_biggrin.gif
