They can do a 3 tire, just with smaller tiers. So instead of a 12-10-8, they can do a 10-8-6. You will still end up with cake left over that you are paying a pretty penny for, but it will be less. Remember, YOU are paying them. You get to tell them what you want/how you want it to look, as long as you are willing to pay the price.

That said, we just skipped having a cake at our small wedding. We served a dessert course with cheese, petit fours, and truffles instead.

@jessyrez:  If you tell them that you’re planning to freeze a layer–or even if you don’t–I’m sure they’d be more than willing to do a 6, 9, 12 for you. Especially if it means more money for them.

You also have the option of doing a fake tier. So you get the servings to match what you what, but the look you also desire.

@jessyrez:  It’s your cake, and if it means more money for them why not? If you want a three tier I figure you could just ask for it or get a fake tier like PPs suggested.

My friend just had a wedding, and they had about 60 people make it to the reception. They had this cake along with two huge sheet cakes to give some variety. They ended up cutting the pieces HUGE for everyone by the way.

They will do whatever you ask them to do, since you’re paying for it. Just tell them the size you want and ask for a quote!
