I know it doesn't technically count as a cake, but cheesecakes, I used to make awesome ones but the last many times I gave tried it has been an epic fail, and I don't know why. The last one my husband got a laugh because I got so mad I punted it off the deck and down the hill behind our house. On the red velvet note: I make awesome red velvet cakes, but use beets instead if food coloring, gives a nice deep red color without the nasty taste, and you can't taste the...
You could do the base in camo pattern using the blue, silver, and black, which are prominent theme colors in monster high. You could do a black or silver ribbon border on the bottom with maybe a bow in front. You could top it with a Frankie string figure and maybe have her holding a toy gun , her pet is a dog so maybe throw him on there as a hunting dog. Given a little time I could probably come up with some other ideas. My DD is a huge monster high fan too.
Costumerczar is right on the nose. I worked for many many years as a planner, still do a little bit. I went thought the cost and trouble of becoming a certified bridal consultant and being registered with the ABC, any reputable planner should not be getting discounts or kickbacks from vendors that their clients are unaware of. I charged fees depending on what services clients wanted, some just needed someone for the rehearsal and say of to coordinate everything some...
A friend of mine consumed dd and has extreme gastro disorders.   I had loaned her a ton of stuff to do a cake for her kid and she wanted sparkles so i just gave her my box of different dusts, not even thinking to tell her to not use the dd on parts that would be eaten ( she had helped in my bakery several times and had heard me tell other people to remove the glittered pieces).   She eneded up in the hospital.   the dust irritated lesions already in her intestines and...
no they will be fine, i actually prefer the way cutout cookies bake up after beung cut out and refridgerated first.   For your icing, just use a royal icing ( sorry don't have a recipe on hand)  or you can use the wilton cookie icing, i don't particualry love the taste but my daughter loves to decorate her cookies with it ( she says she likes it better than homemade royal icing)   so I try to keep it on hand for her.  HTH
It could weaken the gumpaste depending on humidity and other factors, I have had it work perfectly and horriblly, too many factor effect the outcome.   If the client is getting the cake Friday just give them the bag of gel and tell them how to put in in the bowl beore party time, it is an easy task doesn't take long and makes sure it doesn't ruin the bowl piece,   It probablly would be fine, but I always plan for the what ifs and worse case scenarios.
Something that works for most ( not al but most) recipes you find, including box mixes, is to mix 3 TBLs of cornstarch with a couple of tsp of oil ( just to make a paste) do one set for each egg you would use,  I also add about 1/4 cup of soda ( any flavor), don't know why just do seems to help it rise properly.
oh good lord, just reviewed after posting, sorry for my bad spelling/grammar,mommy brain is on full drive today.  lol
If they want three tiers, they pay for three tiers, regardless of if they need that much cake or not.   You tell them I can do it in this size, it will feed this may epopel this is the price,  if you only need it to feed 25 we can go with another design that better fits your budget.  Personally I think 150 is a little low for a three tier, i assuming from the cake discription you would be doing 10 8 6, don't know that a 8 6 4  would work well for the concept they are...
When i had my store front I had so many people asking about using foodstamps.    I got so aggrivated because this one lady wanted a wedding cake to feed 175 people and pay with foodstamps, i told her no,  she went to a local grocery store ( they actually do semi-custom cakes and do decent work, but it's still frozen chemical filled cake and nasty icing)  but got  the cake there with foodstamps, which costs around 350.
