Well I'll start by saying I don't do tiered magic yet. But I was wondering. When clients come in with requests for multiple tiers, what makes you determine if they get the " you're crazy " look?
( Let's say you owned everything possible to make any size and shape )
What is the smallest bottom tier for a multi tiered cake in your opinion ? Or what is the minimum servings you will accept to build 3 tiers or more. If someone wants a tiered cake for 30 people, do you force their opinion so they get a 9' cake or you get them a 4'-5'-6' like they want, even if it may look wonky to some people.
On the opposite spectrum, how high. Let's say someone want's 145 servings. You could bake a 9'-11'-13' rounds, but what if the client asked for 4'-5'-6'-7'-8'-9'-10' ( serves 145 ) do they get the crazy look ? Of course the later would require more work and a higher price tag, but would you try to get away with doing the 9'-11'-13'?
Feel free to chance servings / shapes / sizes or whatever. I'm not trying to " price that cake " here haha I'm wondering when you would be like, No.
Oh and let's pretend you showed them dummies representing what they are thinking about and they still think it's awesome.
