Are your two layer cakes 4" tall or 2" tall?
Usually, when a bride/client requests "tall" tiers, they mean 6 layers. 6 is the most I will do without a plate. I have done 8 layers, but I used a plate between the 2 sets of 4 layers.k
Sorry, I wasn't that clear. I meant that each cake layer is about 2" tall, and they want 4 layers per tier. So each tier will be ~8".
If I put a plate in the middle of each tier, the catering company should know how to cut that, right?
