Do you 'waste' the sides of your wedding cakes? - Page 3

post #31 of 86

I cringed a little inside every time she referred to the scrap and waste cake.  What a nutty thing to do.  And for her to say the industry standard size is 4 fingers by 2, I figure that is about 1 1/2 by 3 inches.  Again, no.  Should link her to Indy's cutting method which works like a charm, ends up with pretty regular sizes and no waste or scrap. Good heavens the waste with even bigger tiers.  Half would be in the garbage.

I just left her a message on her fb site as well.

I haqven't read all your replies but I have had people stand in line waiting until I can serve them a piece w/the outisde icing on it.  What's wrong w/someone who won't serve a piece of cake just because they don't happen to like lots of icing?

I know Earlene discards some of those edge peices in her serving charts too.  Just never understood that.

Waste.

I would be livid if I was the bride or whoever was paying for the cake to "see the caterers in the back feasting on the waste." STOOOOOOOOP, put the knife down, back away from the cake and Google "how to cut a round wedding cake". Ugh.

No circle cutting, no waste.  I have also done it by leaving the two inch piece attached at the end if I want to keep it upright.  Then cut the end  piece when I am at the end of the row.

Doesn't she know it is a sin to waste good cake??? I have never seen such stupidity in my life...well, not often, since my divorce...

Your way is best, I just attached the picture that popped up when I googled "how to cut a round wedding cake". icon_smile.gif I'm a frosting lover, so it makes me sad to think of all the sugar that ended up in a trashcan...

She did actually say, "Now I am just going to discard that," as she moved the hunk over to the plate! Inconceivable!

I also noticed that chunk of hair getting clumpier and greasier in later videos, lol. She must've filmed them all in one day.

Well, I bet it's safe to say she's probably embarrassed by now.

 

I've never heard of such a thing.

I watched it about 5 minutes later after I posted, with the volume up. A couple times actually. Ouch!

I do have to say that there's a baker in town here who tells clients that square cakes are more expensive than round ones because to get a square shape you have to start with a round one, then cut the square one out of that. So you end up wasting a lot of cake. Durrr...

Oh good grief.

Good heavens, how stupid can some professionals be?  The baker sells cakes but doesn't know that there are square cake pans?  You can get square and rectangular at any KMart, Walmar, Target...she must know there are good quality ones available too.  Doesn't even Michaels carry square pans?
