First Humongous Cake. I'm feeling queasy, come in and calm my nerves. - Page 2

K8memphis, I'm certain she wasn't laughing at you. I think she was directing that at the boldness For which BakingIrene has become known.

I'm sure she'll be horrified at the thought of offending you.

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

YES.  I started collecting the odd pans (7-9-11-13) when I realised that they got you very close to requested serving counts.  The 3" difference is a little smaller than the 4" that I prefer, but it still works better than the 2" to my eyeballs.

 

Same thing works for square tiers--but I just use the 7x11, 9x13, 11x15 pans and chop off the extra cake. 

 

I always designed tiered cakes as a total well proportioned package, after the customer looked at pictures and decided which shapes of tiers they wanted. The serving count always went a little over.  Nobody refused to pay.The cake always got eaten the day after, if not on the day of the party. I heard many funny stories about family members DEMANDING leftover cake for breakfast.

so the round on square has little triangle ledges that can be awesome 

 

everyone is of course entitled to their opinion 

 

my opinion is that asking for advice and getting together and laughing about it means no more advice for you

K8memphis, what I found funny was her bluntness, and the fact that she didn't mince words, which is why I BOLDED what I was referring to, and also why the only response I could come up with was "I love you." 

 

I apologize that you misunderstood my post. I may be a lot of crazy things but I would not disrespect you or anyone who has taken the time to be of help. That fact that you think I was laughing at you kinda hurts my e-feelings to be honest.

Thanks leah_s. All my pans are even (then I trim down to the odd size) but I'm seeing enough reasons to invest in the odd pans. I did a 5/8 and really liked how it turned out compared to the 6/8.
