It’s been a month now since we completed the enormous replica cake of Brown University’s University Hall. Enormous was an understatement as it feed 1,300 people and weighed about 500-600 lbs. We’ve finally compiled our photos and fun facts for this cake to share with you.
72 sheet cake layers of Red Velvet and Chocolate Cake
+ additional 1,200 cupcakes to feed the crowd
20 x 10 Qt buckets of our Italian meringue buttercream
125 lbs of our homemade marshmallow fondant
6-8 staff members to maneuver the cake around the bakery and at event
166 windows all cut and molding trim added and all window panes piped on by hand
You forgot the part about the world’s press taking notice, starting with the UK’s Daily Mail.
Beautiful…..must appreciate the hard work.
Out of curiosity. How much would a cake of that magnitude run you?
