How many servings will this camera shaped cake give me?
Cake Central Top Picks
I've made many camera cakes. This is what I start with to make one to serve 30 guests. I bake extra since there will be some waste. I have the sized templates if you want to email me.
For 30 servings prepare 4 batches of cakes (48 servings).
Bake ONE 12x18” and a 5”, 5” and 4” round.
Cut the 12x18” rectangle into FOUR 6”x9” rectangles
What type of camera does she want? I assumed you were making a DSLR. Most of those are similarly sized. A cake to serve 30 guests will be larger than life. I go online and get the camera from all angles -- front, back, side and top. Then I blow up the photo to the size I want to make the cake. That makes it very easy to begin carving the cake. Here is a blog post I described the process. http://www.sweetgrace.net/2012/04/15/how-to-make-a-custom-camera-cake-nj/
