Here we go again! I have a mother who is asking for two cakes, one for a daughter graduating Jr. High, and the other for a daughter graduating University. This is her message to me about what she wants on each cake. Any ideas? Each cake has to feed 40.
My suggestion given how much the customer wants to spend is to buy already made decorations. I would not venture to make fondant / gumpaste decorations when they only want to pay <$75. This is not even $2 per serving ($2 X 40 = $80). I have done 40 servings with a 2 TIER cake- 3 layer 8 " with a 3 layer 6".
AI agree with Ropalma...I would purchase the premade decorations. She's asking for a lot to only want to spend $75 per cake (meaning if you were to hand make some of the decor!). Is she asking for the cake to be layered with fondant? That's a really tight budget based in the request.
