So you get your first order for a wedding cake. You ask the important questions and now you are ready to design. The client gives you a photo of a cake that she would like her cake to be similar to and you start deigning.

Questions:
How do you know what size cake are in the picture?
What size cake pan are you using?

I got my first wedding cake order. I must say in all the classes i have taken no one ever sat down and explain, what size cake you should be using when you are doing to create a certain look. Subsequently i went to Google searching for the answer.

I had an idea that i can put an 8' onto of a 10' but you can also do a 6' on top of a 9'. There are rules but they are no rules, you can let you creative juice follow to create a great cake.

I start designing my cake. I need it to feed 100 people. Therefore i decided on the follow1ng:
6' round - Vanilla
6' square -Red Velvet
8' round - Red Velvet and Vanilla
10' square - Vanilla
12' round - Red velvet

This feeds about 114 people.

Stay posted as i dissect creating a wedding cake.
