So my client wants this cake and I plan to charge her $155 for a 2 layer 8” round on the bottom and 6” round on top. The thing is, I can’t tell if it’s a 3 layer 6” round or just 2. She wants it to serve 20 so I’m not sure should if should I leave it as a 2 layer 6” round on top or just keep it as 3.
Not sure how to best size this in terms of layers so I’m kind of unsure of the price. Help!
It is not a question of how any layers, but the height of each layer. These cakes appear to me to be two, approximately 2" layers, torted and filled, resulting in a 4" to 5" tier, which would yield 22 party size servings.
Thank you SandraSmiley. Yes I worked out my pricing considering 23 servings plus the fondant work etc and I think my price is now closer to $165.
wouldn't an 8" and a 6" have more servings even if they were party size?
Yes I think you're right K8memphis. Betwee 15-20 for the 8" and 8-10 for the 6". I quoted her $170 and she thought it was too pricey so we're looking at other options in her price range.
I always use wedding size servings -- but what chart are you using --
oh -- 0k -- yeah I was posting as you were -- ha!
The Wilton one for party servings.
gotcha -- cool
It looks just like 2 layers on each cake, but from the Wilton chart for party servings, an 8" (20) and 6" (12) is 32 servings. If she wants 20 servings, why not knock it down to a 6" and 4" which gives that?
