I have agreed to make a two tier birthday cake for a surprise 50th birthday for my sister in law.
Thing is, I dont know how big to make it! Iv never made anything like this before. I have only made cakes for my own little family before so now im stressing!! The party is to cater for 100 people.
I was thinking 2 x10 inch bottom tier (making it about 4" deep) and then a 2 x 6 inch top tier (also about 4" deep). Does this sound right?
Also, when you place your top tier on, does it sit on its board ?
Any help gratefully received.
