HI, I AM NEW TO THIS SITE AND TO THE DECORATING. I'VE TAKEN SOME CLASSES AND NOW ASKED BY FRIENDS TO MAKE CAKES FOR THEIR CHILDREN'S PARTIES. MY PROBLEM IS THEY ALL WANT THE TALL TIER CAKES, WITH FONDANT AND BC. WHICH ARE WAY TOO BIG FOR 14 -20 PEOPLE.. DO YOU HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS? (I HAVE THE 8 & 6 ROUNDS WHAT CAN I USE FOR THE SMALLER?) THANK-YOU
For a tier over the 6 and 8, you can use a 4" cookie cutter to cut out sheet cake. The only other alternative is to use a dummy on the bottom.
But you still have to charge for the dummy and the decoration expense for the dummy tier.
Thank-you, that's what I was thinking, using foam on the bottom.
If I frost with the Butter Cream frosting, do I have to cover it first with anything, to make sure it sticks? Or just treat it like a cake?
Never thought of the sheet cake, and cut with cutter.
Magic Line makes smaller pans in sizes 2",3",4",5". If you look in my pictures at "Kim's Cake", it was made using these mini pans.
There is a line at Micheals of the smaller size pans. Not sure who makes them, but they fit on top of 6". Something like a 4".
