Hi. I'm making a baby shower cake for a friend this weekend. The cake I'm making is here:
There will be 50 people in attendance, so I was thinking I would use a 14" cake for the buggy with 8" wheels. When I put the pans out on a cake board, it looks huge to me. Almost silly big. I then looked at it with a 12" buggy and 6" wheels. I'm now at a loss, which should I do???? If I do the 12" buggy I could do a sheet cake to make up the additional servings. Could someone give me their opinion? Is 14" too big????
What she ^ said.
CWR, Thank you for replying. I don't think I was clear in my question. What I want to know is this...is the cake optically too big? Would a 14" look funny or even ridiculous? Would going smaller be better and then do a sheet cake too?
IMO, no, no, and no.
Don't forget, you'll be carving it too. the pans always look bigger than the finished product.
Thank you All, I'm starting to think 14" will be just fine!
Please post a picture of your cake once you make it. I think the cake picture of the baby buggy is too cute!!!! Good luck, I am sure it will come out fine!!!!
So, I did it! I was nervous, but it turned out fine. Mission accomplished and Picture posted!
