I just got an email fome someone asking for a large round cake.....I asked how large andshesays "like 10" high and 25" across"
How can I pull this off? She wants a hole in the top so she can put a wine glass on top?!
The only way that would be possible is to make a bunch of sheets and carve them round, or at least I think that's the only way. Is she serious?? I cannot imagine what on earth this would be made to resemble.
I see no way to 'pull this off'
Oh, Duff (Charm City Cakes) made a huge 'cupcake' by baking in a metal tub w/a huge hole in the middle (he put another something in container in the center I think filled w/water), then baked other cakes to fill in the hole. I don't remember the final size of this thing. They said it was a world record for the largest cupcake, but then the honor was taken away because it wasn't actually a cupcake.
Only special commercial ovens could hold any cake near that size. Many won't even hold a 16" round much less 25".
What in the world is happening w/people suddenly wanting such huge cakes??
Thank you guys! I just did a jaw drop when she suggested it, and all Ikept thinking (other that how am I going to di it) is how on earth would it look?!?!?!?!?
jammjenks~This is what SHE suggested to me................but I mean, how many sheet cakes and waste is this going to be....and carve it round. Aiyiyi...........Thank you!!!
kakeladi ~Oh yes, I remember that show.....Didn't realize the award was taken away, but even I wondered how that could be considered a cupcake :p
I'm just going to have to tell her no. Another question I had, even if I stacked sheet cakes, was how on earth am I going to find a cake board large enough.............sheesh.
Yes, not only would there be a problem w/a board big enough how would anyone get it out/in the door? People just don't think.
LOL, good thought kakeladi [/code]
Give her a price like Duff would charge & see if she still wants to do it. You could then get a real wood board from Home Depot or Lowes & cover it & start stacking. I agree, I can't imagine what a cake that size would look like & the decorating would take forever. You'd have to charge a lot.
Thanks for your opinion newnancy! I told her I wouldn't do it and that she may be able to find someone else, but there are just too many factors in this cake that I just don't feel comfortable doing. Haven't heard from her since......
