I am looking for opinions here. I am making a rainbow cake (so 6 layers) for 40 people. She does not care what size or how many tiers. She's leaving it all up to me. What would you guys do? I was initially thinking of using 12" layers to make it a single tier, and then providing her with the cutting guide for 40 servings. Or would you recommend a 2-tier? Thanks in advance!
12 in serves 56 at 4 inches high.Â You would be giving a lot of cake away with this size.Â 10 inch serves 38 at 4 inches high so would still be plenty given the extra height you are planning.Â Or you could do a 6,8 for 36 servings at 4 inches high, again given the extra height should be enough.Â Just my thoughts...
Speaking of rainbow cakes...I made one last night.Â Â Â The recipe asks for 2 boxes of mix.Â Â I made 6 thin layers with BC in between and it is HUGE...at least 7 1/8" tall.Â Â Â Betty Crocker recipe says serves 10.Â NO WAY.Â Â Â I bet with wedding slices, that sucker will serve at least 30.Â It takes 2 boxes!Â
Does anyone know how many party servings & wedding servings this will serve?Â Â
AI made an 8 inch round rainbow cake the other day. I used 3 cake mixes to get my layers; 2 cups per layer and had some batter left over. Each layer was approx 3/4 inch high with two ice cream scoops of BC in between. Total height was jut shy of 5 inches. My husband enjoyed cake tops with cool whip.
I'm not sure but the cake I ended up making used 6 boxes of cake mix, LOL. It was meant to feed 40 but turned out to be way too much cake. I used 12" pans and only trimmed enough to level.They sure did love it though. Only charged $65 for it. Live and learn...
May I ask what coloring you used to get the vibrant colors?Â I am going to be making a similar cake soon and I can never find the right dark colors, although easier for cake batter I guess than for coloring fondant.
IÂ used Americolor gel.Â Â They...in my opinion are the best gel colors. Â Â Â
