Good Morning all!

I am making a red velvet cake tonight and it's my first paid cake for her valentines day dinner on saturday...I bought a 12 x2" pan (only 1), I thought buying two may be too much. So I am thinking of course to tort and filling nice and high with cream cheese frosting in the middle to give it height. If that's not a good idea, I have two 10" pans that I normall use.

My second question is can I color cream cheese frosting?

And last but not least, how much should I charge for the heart shaped cake or the 10" (stacked) cake?

Please any replies would be greatly appreciated, I am making this cake as soon as I get off of work...

Rather than looking at how high the cake is decide on how many servings are needed.
A 10"x4" (stacked as you call it) will serve 35-38
A 12"x2" should yield 42-45.

If you are baking from mixes a 10 heart will need about 3/4 of one.
The 12" will use one whole mix.
For 2 10" pans 1 1/2 mixes - the amount that my *original* WASC recipe yieldsicon_smile.gif
