Help, i've got a wedding cake to make next year, 150 to feed, all sponge, albeit different flavours, decorated in sugarpaste, i'm thinking, 14, 12, and a 10inch round, i have no idea what to charge, and she wants a smallish fruit cake in royal icing to please mum i think, i need so much help as never made a cake that size before ( the 14inch terrifies me) TIA.

Slim, those costing sheets are very helpful, thank you so much.

I like 3 inches difference between each cake, gives a nicer shape so a 12, 9 and 6.

Good idea Coco.

Glad you like them and find them useable. Please pass them onto cakey friends, I don't mind them being shared

Nanny, do you have a turntable ? You won't be able to do a royal iced round cake without one. You also need an icing comb and an icing rule.
