First wedding cake order

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi!
Just joined, and have already learned so much icon_smile.gif
I have had a cupcake business for about 6 month now and have made a few small cakes for about 30 people. My best friend wants me to make her wedding cake for about 65 people. We live in Florida, and the wedding will be outside. The type of cake she wants is a strawberry Bavarian cream cake. I've never made a wedding cake before and I am freaking out ! Any tips?Especially for the fact that it will be outside and the weather has been very on and off here. Also, how much should I charge?
Thank you!

Don't know that I'm much help but as another Floridian, unless we could count on the weather being "chilly", I would be a bit leary of a cream cake being outside for any length of time, unless there is a way the cake could remain refrigerated until just before serving. Perhaps for the fillings you could use a buttercream flavored with Loran oils to acheive the taste? I have used Indydebbi's recipe many times in our heat & it has held up every time! Since I've only done cakes for friends/family, I can't offer any sound advice on charging, but there are a few matrix's on this site that might help( I think 1 was recently posted). Of course, what type of decorations you would be doing, fondant, flowers, etc. would effect your price. Good luck!!
