AHi. My cousin wants me to make her son a cake to look like thebone in the picture I have attatched. I think im pretty sure how to make the cake. Im unsure of the dimensions though. Would i make a 12" 10" and 8"? And how many cakes would be in each layer? Im not charging her for the cske but just as a guide how much would you charge for the full cake? And how much would u chsrgr just to make the top layer? Im new to cakes so any jelp would be greatly apprecisted. Thank you xxx [IMG][/IMG]

8/10/12 would work but that is 118 servings...a lot to "give away." .   I would do a 6/8/10.  That is 74 servings.  If it was my "cousin" and I was charging her for the top tier...I'd probably charge her $50.   That is the family discount price...not my customer pricing.   Pricing varies from region-to-region.   I'm not sure how expensive your cakes are in the UK or what would be "expected" for that top tier.

The 6" double will work for the head.    It will just be smaller.  Just scale everything down to be proportionate to the sizes you are using.   If she only wants to serve 40 people then you definately do not need an 8/10/12.
