How many tiers and layers should I use?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hello!

 

I am scheduled to make my first wedding cake (I prefer 3d themed cakes) this weekend and could use some help figuring out the right size pans and correct # of layers per cake. The design is a 4 tier round and needs to serve 120. Any suggestions or references?

 

Thank you!

Part of it will depend on how tall your tiers are.  I'd say that the serving chart above is planning on 4" tiers.  If yours are shorter then they'll serve fewer.

Thanks!!  And yes, they are for cakes that are 2 layers high and around 4" in total height (mine usually wind up around 5" but I guarantee they get at least 4")
