I am making a wedding cake for a family member in a couple weeks and need some help.
I need to make a 3 tier square cake for 60 people.
What sizes are best?
What price would be best to charge for a basic wedding cake of that size?
3 tiers for only 60 people is going to be hard to do unless you do only 2" tiers. (12,9,6= 60)
If you want 4" high cakes even 10, 8 ,6 is going to be more servings than you need - 75.
Pricing is very hard to suggest as it depends on where you live, what your skill level is etc.
I suggest somewhere around $3 a serving. & not just the 60 they want but how many you actually get fromm the size cake you make so you're talking around $180 to 225.
Here's a great thread --
