I just made a white chocolate ganache frosted cake with fondant on top. It is two tiers, about 3 inches high each layer. It weighs a ton!! Is it the way I make the cake or do cakes just weight a lot? I make children's cakes and cakes with SMBC and they are lighter. Just making sure cakes genuinely are heavy.
I'm always amazed by how much cakes weigh...
SMBC is much lighter than ganache & fondant. But still, once you get a couple tiers going... The weight starts to add up fast!
Yup...I am always amazed at how heavy cakes are when I'm done! Even the single tier ones, once they are torted, filled, iced & covered with fondant AND then decor is added weigh a ton+!
Yep I have a 2 tier waiting for pick up today, and I swear the thing weighs as much as my fat cat (20lbs!) lol
yes tiered cakes are heavy you think its bad for sponge try lifting fruit now there heavy
