Bumping this thread.
AZCouture started this excellent thread ( http://cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-748828.html ) not too long ago, and it led to probably one of the best discussions we've had on CC.Recently I've had clients who ordered cake for an event, coming back wanting something smaller for, say, dinner with family or a game night. Don't want fondant or gumpaste or fancy boards. Just want my cake for dinner and thus cannot meet my current minimum order quantity.I've also had...
