My cousin asked that I do a wedding cake for her friend who is getting married in July. She is giving her friend the wedding cake as a gift. Therefore she will be covering the cost of the cake. I am excited as this will be my first wedding cake.
I am charging a reasonable price to ensure that I keep the order. I see this as an opportunity to showcase my work and I am looking forward to making not just a great looking cake, but a great tasting cake too. Despite there was no request for a filling, I want to include a filling that will compliment a vanilla sponge cake, but also ensure that the bride is ok with it. I would like to get suggestions as to what filling would go great with a vanilla sponge cake.
With this opportunity, I also want to do petit fours. I never did petit fours before. Since I would like to expand my menu in the future, I had petit fours in mind. I have a few weeks to practice this cake and the petit fours so any ideas of what kind of flavor, a unique design (if there is a link or links) and a unique/attractive but cost-effective packaging will be great. The petit fours will be done free of charge as I am using this opportunity as a marketing initiative to promote my business. Thanks in advance.
