Hi fellow cake friends

So I am in need of some brainstorming help. I have been approached by a promotional company to make a cake to feed 400 people for their customer appreciation day. They were thinking of a large long cake cake with their logo on it. It basically looks like a street sign. They said they wanted to wow their guests. Their company is a promo business that can put your logo on bags, pens, coats, paper, mugs, etc. So my thought was to make a large tiered cake with a few characters wearing tshirts and coats with the company logo on it, but also add lots of little items the company makes with their logo on it. Then on the top have a larger company logo . Anyone have some ideas? It is a very important cake as this could help expand into more corporate events. I would love to hear any advice/ideas you may have. Thank you in advance

Do this. It's what they're asking for.

They aren't asking for a tiered cake. Your thought isn't on the same page as theirs. I'd touch base with them if you're doing something completely different from what they've expressed.

Wilton Party cake chart
a 14" x 22" feeds 98 people.

If you make a large long cake, how big would you make it?
22" x 56" ????????

Did they tell you how it would be presented so you know your size constraints?

I'd suggest making four commercial full sheet cakes pushed together and constructed on plywood, iced and decorated as one huge cake, and delivered fully assembled.

If you don't own a cart for transporting that will support the center weight to prevent the plywood from bowing, you could transport on the surface of a full length folding table or have them arrange pick up on their folding table.
