My sister is getting married and she is having my cousin make her cake. He is a professional decorator and he works for a bakery that is in all of the local and some of the national wedding magazines called Icing on the Cake in Newton Ma. Anywho, he is doing the cake for free and my mom really wants to pay him something. The cake is 5 tiers. 2 chocolate, with choc mousse. 2 vanilla with white choc mousse. 1 red velvet with cream cheese filling. Frosted in white buttercream and it will have star decor all over it. not sure if it is royal icing or fondant stars, does anyone know what they would charge for that? there are 200 people attending the wedding if that helps!
thank you! I know.....My cousin and my sister are so close and he would never charge her for the cake. He said that from day one. I knew a cake that big would feed atleast 300. I can't wait to see the finished product.
It would really depend on how many the cake serves not how many people are at the wedding I would guess at 5 tiers it serves much more than 200. But wow too have someone offer to do that is amazing that is A LOT of work. A 5 tier serves between 300-350 people. Depending on tier sizes check out the link for sizes servings and an estimated cost
