Thanks

By the way, I love your butter icing you posted awhile back. I've been using it ever since, and everyone loves it.
One question: How much cocoa can I use to make it a chocolate icing?
again, thanks

added cocoa? As much as you like.

I make my chocolate icing by mixing a a batch of my bc with a batch of my ganache.

Wow, I have NEVER seen cake for $1.50 a slice in a restaurant. They're all $3.50 or more around per slice here in New England and greater Boston area. I think she maybe has to raise that rate a bit for you to charge enough to even cover your costs and for her to make some profit. I don't think I'd do a full two layer 9" cake for less than $15, seriously. If it's fancy decorating, you're talking $25 for a cake.

I'd say do basic chocolate cake - the doctored recipe maybe, or maybe just regular cake mix (supermoist) with buttercream frosting with butter.

If she wants a chocolate decadence cake, which costs far more to make, you will have to charge her more for it and she will have to make those slices more expensive, too.

I'm not sure if you're going to get your money or time's worth doing this long term, are you? Can you ask her if you can put some flyers or cards in the lobby or on the register, or a note in the menu about the cake supplier with contact information.

Best of luck!

I was reading your post about needing a cake that is about $5.00 to make. I don't know if this is the kind of cake you would want but its a big hit here in GA. I make them all the time and its real easy and you can make a bunch of them in advance or make mini ones and the owner of the eating astablishments can dust them with powdered sugar before serving and people will love them. I call it a sour cream pound cake and its to die for. If you want the directions just email me and I will be glad to send it to you. Hope this helps a bit. thumbs_up.gif
