A friend of mine has asked me to make a 4 pound cake. no other information yet as i have to call her and discuss. so would like your tips and guidance plz.
I would like to ask What is better: cakes by weight or servings?
I am wondering how can we make a make a cake whose final weight is 4 pounds? HOw do the bakeries do this? I mean i have no control on the weight of the cake plus frosting and icing on it. and i do only buttercream cakes. NO FONDANT.
Plz PLZ i need ur expert opinions at the earliest. If cake by pound is not ok i can also talk her into making the cake by servings. then again , how can i calculate the cake by serving. how big will it be. also as im a beginner, i havnt made tiered cakes. so i will making only a single tier cake . iv only made 6 inch round cakes and heart cakes. How can we calculate the size to make a single cake without tiers depending on the number of servings in mind??
eagerly waiting for all ur replies.
