Hi, I'm new in this but I have a customer asking for kitchen cakes for a wedding. They have a fake cake for the photos. The problem is that is for 400 hundred people, what can I do? Ideas please, cake pan size, price? Etc...
Is only kitchen cakes with buttercream but 400 people is a lot, Im scared....

I would make sheet cakes. Price depends on serving size. Check out the bakeries in the area and see how much they charge per serving and price yours accordingly. You don't have to do anything too ornate since it will just be cut and served. A simple border will usually suffice.

Ok thanks

Hi, you will do fine. 

I use a half sheet cake pan (12x18) for "kitchen" cakes for my bridal shows. 

 

A 12x18 sheet cake (2 cake layers with filling) serves 108 slices.  12 times 18 equals 216, divide by 2 and you get 108 slices that are 1 inch by 2 inches and 4 inches tall- a wedding cake serving.

This size of cake is easier to carry and serve.

Hi, that cake pan, fix well in a regular oven?

Hi, you should have no trouble fitting a 12x18 into your regular sized oven.
