Topic: Two tier brown zebra stripes with hot pink bow
sweetgrandma 09/19/2012 9:54 AM
The lady requested the smallest two tier I could make so this is a 6 and 4" The cake is "Better than WASC" cake that was posted in the recipe section..(I think that's the name of it!) with bavarian cream filling. Picture doesn't pick up the colors..the bow really is hot pink.

cute idea, love the bow... sometimes smaller ones are more of a pita...hehehe

That is the cutest little cake! But I agree that the tiny ones are a pain.

Just curious...what would you charge for a cake this small?

That is cute, I hate 4" cakes. Since it has the bow, at least $25 - 30.

Very nice! I would charge about $54

Very cute...same as fredo $54...based on $3.50 per would be for 16 servings I assume.

SG...... May I ask what is the bow made of????? I need to make one the beginning of Oct. & have never done one. Any helpful hints???? Thank You for your help.

Here's some instructions for making one out of all fondant. You can probably find some youtube videos to watch as well.

sweetgrandma - Your cake is so cute and it sounds delish. Love the color combo too. I didn't even realize there were 4 inch pans...that's small!! Did you have to dowel this at all?

thanks for the sweet comments!

Berry good...
I made the bow out of Wilton fondant with gum tex in it. I make the loops as thin as I can and let them dry on a cardboard paper towel roll. I cut the end that goes into the cake in a V shape and use a little frosting to hold the loops in place. I let the loops dry several days and store them in an uncovered container til I need them,

Dietcoke...I found the 4 " pan at my local little cake shop a couple of weeks ago. I don't know how long they've been out but I don't remember seeing them before.

Your cake is so pretty. I apologize to you and everyone else for not going into this site for a very long time. I don't intentionally ignore everybody but have just been focusing on wedding cakes so usually stay in the wedding section. But today, I decided I should look at everyone's beautiful cakes in here.
sweetgrandma 09/21/2012 2:19 PM
No apology needed!!
I think we all tend to go to the section that's in line with the kind of cakes we're doing....I find myself skipping posts if the cake isn't something I'm interested in at the time...

This is such a cute cake... in size, color, etc. I love that you were able to do so much with smaller cakes and make it special. Saving it to Fav's!
