You could also use 1/2" foam board. Sometimes the dollar store carries it but I usually buy @ my craft store and I use that 40% coupon. That way it costs about $2.50 for a poster board size piece that I can get 2 12" rounds from. Just cut out with a utility knife and cover with fondant or fancy foil. Hope this helps:D
I have a digital portfolio on my iPad mini and I also use the cake stacker app for iPad & I phone. The app is a quick way to calculate servings and show a visual of cake size/shape. Having a tablet has saved me carrying a bunch of stuff around and I can add a square reader too so I can take payments.

I just did a version of the top cake this weekend. I printed the image out (several copies of the size needed) cut ot the image as a whole. Lightly dust back of paper w/cornstarch then use it as a template to cut your fondant. I use a 50/50 fondant gumpaste blend or fonadant with tylose added so it won't stretch so much. Then use your other paper copies to cut out other colors/ shapes. Think of it like a coloring book picture. Then add your thin layers of color to base...
Good luck! It'll be fineπŸ˜„
Try researching a SPS system to stack your cakes. I recentlt did a large wedding cake on the hottest day of the year 100+.degrees. The system was really stable ( I did my research on CC)and greatly reduced my worry.
Oh my customer is the very young overwhelmed bride. Problem is MIL, step Mom and every one and there brothers wants to have a say. Bride is not great about returning messages or calls.....I'm sure it will all work out but I WILL NOT deliver 9 hrs or 5 hrs early(that was MIL's idea). It's all paid for so at least that's a plus. :D
Step mom was the one who wanted it there SO EARLY, "for pictures" LOL!!!! Sometimes you just have to laugh...what was she thinking
Oh no worries.πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜Š I used to be director of a large school my skin is thicker than that lol! They are driving me crazy but that's another story πŸ˜„. The cake will be buttercream and we've already had lengthy discussions on ac sturdy tables, and once cake is placed/set up I have completed my job. I plan to deliver assembled....I've carried a 6/8/10 thru a hotel and up three flights of stairs(elevator broke😟) .....my son will help me carry so I'm not overly concerned....no...
I already told them no to 9hrs unless she was willing to sign waiver releasing me from all responsibility. I know it's my job to tell them & I have. My question was how far before event do you deliver? I was planning on two hours before....so as not to be rushed.
