Price the Cake (Friday)

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 

I've been enjoying the 'price the cakes' lately and I've always been curious about this cake, I saved it last year from CC but can't remember the baker to ask her about it!!

 

I assume 14,12,10,8,6 maybe 6" each tier?? it looks tall!

 

I told my bride-to-be you may have any design you like.... almost regretted it! lol. Really happy in the end though :) Hope you like it too!  These were guest photos, I never actually took my own (nut case!) but when I get the photog's one I'll post it here :)  Here are some instructions:  http://cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-743876.html

Haha! I think your price is very fair! :) How many servings is that? (I don't feel like adding up all those tiers, lol)

I had it at 200 as it was dual flavour and figured everyone would want a piece of each!

K8 lol there were tears of a different kind shed in the making.... But I wiped them off before they left a mark....

It is really beautiful. Seriously.

I'm very interested in the technique. Did you wrap fondant strips? Did you have to decorate on site?

IF I was able to decipher the technique & I it similar to what I think, $1275

It's never "just cake!"

 

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

I bet there was! ....wait...you're a guy? I need to show your cakes to my husband. I am trying to get him to start caking with me. I know we can make 3 times what he makes at his job if we work together, but he thinks it is unmanly. Even after seeing Buddy and Mauro, and Duff and them...

And I would probably charge about $1000, based on the 200 serving count.
Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

During the planning i was really fretting about transporting it as i couldnt work out a way to build in a seperation... So i went for transport in one piece; stacked, shaped (which was way harder than i thought it would be) double layer whipped ganach, a thin covering in white fondant to seal it then wound 3" wide strips of modeling choc one at a time from bottom to top. If you google "CC how do i make this amazing wedding cake" you should find my post asking for help and then some tips :)

 

it was a thick covering but it transported fine though took some muscles to cut!! We've a great pic of the surprise on my face at how tough it was!

 

I had it that every 4 roses a new tier started so it was easy for the caterer to disassemble :) 

 

and you tell that hubby that it takes more manliness to do something you perceive as unmanly than it takes to run from it!

My son is a 6'6" woman chasing retired Marine core gunnery sgt who bakes and decorates cakes. He was the first person that I saw decorate a cake from beginning to end (he even piped roses and leaves). Real men bake and decorate party.gif
