Hello! I have a request to do a repeat design that I've done before but they only need to feed 75 people. how would you scale down this cake??
http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-photo_1390765.html the sizes here were 18.104.22.168.6
I would stick to 3 tiers, serving 100. Can't always get the exact number needed. Or two tier 8 and 10, to serve 82. Or use dummies, if you're up for it.
thanks, I think I will do the 10 8 6 they wouldn't be eating the 6 anyway..it will just balance it out
But if you are planning to hand stencil that damask print as well, I would charge a freaking buttload for that cake!
Haha!! thanks, I am hand stenciling it.... probably not charging enough.. I really need to work on that!
6" two-layer top (serves 1
8" single layer 2nd tier (serves 16)
10" two-layer 3rd tier (serves 50)
12" single layer bottom tier (serves 36)
1) total servings: 18+16+50 = 84
2) total servings: 16+50+36 = 100 (not counting top tier)
Thanks! I am always confused when it comes to servings.. I have so many charts and Im never sure which is the most realistic.
