What is the most tiers that you've stacked?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I have a customer who is wanting a tiered cake and she wants 6 tiers!! The most i've ever done is 4. Can you even deliver a 6 tiered cake without it falling over? She wants it stacked with no pillars or anything in between. Thanks in advance for the advice.

8. But no way in heck would I transport it fully assembled. First 4 tiers yes, and after that, the rest get stacked on site.

because of the weight---will probably be too heavy to handle--unless it's really petite--could probably do a 4x6x8x10x12x14--but that's a lot of cake--a 4x5x6x7x8x9* would be a snap--depends on the serving amount--a 3x5x7x9x11x13 would also work delivered stacked--

 

or if you have a couple really short tiers--that would decrease the weight too--or if they were all short tiers

 

tons of variables--

 

* stacked asymmetrically

 

how many servings?

if you had your own tv show what would be your favorite commercial/sponsor

i think i'd like ghirardelli and hershey for starters...

Most I've stacked is 5 tiers.  I couldn't even move it across the counter, though, let alone carry it.  Fortunately, my husband was available to help!

 

I can just about carry a 3 tier...  anything bigger I need to get my hubby to carry for me.

Inside this fat body, there's a thin woman screaming to get out...... but I can usually shut her up with chocolate!

I did 7 tiers for my wedding cake and only had bubble tea straws for support (and 3 full dowels down the center). I didnt have to drive with it - just get it from my hotel suite to the reception site (in the hotel) and I was a nervous wreck! The bellman moved it for me on a luggage cart and I walked beside it with my hand holding it steady. If I would have had time (or wasn't in a wedding dress), I would have done it a a 4 tier and a three tier and assembled on site. If I had to drive with it, i'd have had a coronary or an accident, no doubt.

Assemble on site! Don't put yourself through that kind of stress.

I have to go with the others who say to assemble on site!!  There would be less stress on you that way!!

Wow, I couldn't even imagine what an 8 tiered cake would look like so I had to google it. Goodness, how much did it weigh?

I've done several 7 tiers and a bunch of 6 tiers.  And no I can't lift a monster cake like that.  Even with SPS I assemble on site when they are that big.
