I want to attempt to make a cake with chcolate cigero's around it. Can someone tell me where I can get it at a good price? Also, how much will I need for a 8" and 10" cake?
Have your cake and eat it are reasonable price and you need about 85 for an 8" cake
Squires kitchen sell them in boxes of 100 i believe, i think there about twenty pound a box, Steep, but they really are good quality and look superb
my apologies, its a 750g Box, approx 120 contents, Costing 25.99.
They come in milk white and dark.

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?
What I meant in my lqast posting was it looks like squires is the best bet! Sorry, I was typing too fast..
Lol, its ok 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
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.
Have your cake and eat it website have the cigarellos at 500g for £12.99 think that is cheaper.
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.
