For 100 servings, what would you suggest for cake layers sizes? I've never made a hamburger cake before but the bride has great confidence in me for whatever reason... It's actually her wedding cake because the groom loves burgers soooo much.
I would sculpt the top of the cake into the bun shape but not sure about sizes overall to achieve the hamburger look with minimal sculpting. Please help! Thank you!!!
A 16" serves 100. I'd make a 1" thick bottom bun, a 1" thick burger patty, and a 2" thick top buncarved as needed.
Thanks Unlimited! Do you mean 16 inch rounds for the whole thing?
What do you think of 12 inch rounds, 4 or 5 of them (each 2 inches)? I think she is looking for some height...wants to make it into a big surprise for the groom.
Since you're going to lose some cake from the carving, you might want to make the bottom layer 2" thick, too. You could also make the bun parts out of yellow or white cake and the patty out of chocolate, so that it would still look hamburgerish after you cut it.
