I have found several recipes that are really traditional sponge cakes, but was wondering if anyone has played with any non-traditional ones, like a good chocolate or some other flavor. Anyone have a recipe for a good one that they have tried? Danielle
I haven't done petits four for a customer yet and was wondering how many to figure for each guest and how much to charge compared to a normal slice price just for figuring purposes? Danielle
Just wondering what people usually charge. These are going to be decorated a little bit and then some of them will be tuxedo strawberries. Thanks! Danielle
Totally! I had someone book 2 weeks in advance. I thought maybe they had just gotten engaged and were planning it on the quick, but they had been planning a Halloween wedding since July (not that that is a long time, but more than 2 weeks I agree with Indy. If I have the date available, I don't really care how long in advance they book. I just have to be realistic about what they can expect. Danielle
I would love to get some run-downs from all of you more seasoned cake pros on what a tasting looks like for you.

I did talk to Leah (thanks SO much for all of your help, Leah) quite a bit about doing SPS and have done it on one other cake but this cake that I am doing now has 6" tiers and I just wondered if anyone has personally used it on a taller cake? I know the standard is to separate tiers every 3" when you have more than 4", so does that still apply even if you use SPS? It is for tomorrow and I have the SPS all ready to go but I keep going back and forth on whether to use it...
Thank you so much! I did try searching and for some reason can't ever find a darn thing when I search.
