The most expensive cake I was ever going to do was a 3 tiered wedding cake for a girl from NY city. It was to be chocolate cake with white chocolate mousse and raspberries filling. Dark chocolate ganache on the outside with individual chocolate pieces placed on the sides of the cake like a mosaic and some floral accents. Price $560. (for 130 people)
I say WAS.. because this reception was to be held on Sept 14, 2001 at a banquet facility on the top floor of the World Trade Center. Three days after 9/11
I cannot tell you how terrible I felt for that couple. As far as I know they did not do a big wedding, and no.. I did not end up doing their cake.
