    Honestly.. I definitely wouldn’t notice.. 

    For the Family that is paying close attention, I would think they’d assume it was a different tier

    Not only would most people not notice, no one would care. Do it.

    @ekizuna:  Thank you… now I am singing “Still Alive”. So….

    Go ahead and leave me. I think I’d prefer to stay inside. Maybe you’ll find someone else to help you. Maybe Black Mesa? That was a joke. Haha. Fat chance. Anyway this cake is great. It’s so delicious and moist.

     

     

     

    Seriously though, I wouldn’t care if I got the “wedding” cake or not. I’d just want cake… well, if I could eat it. Yay for being gluten intolerant. =(

    No one notices these things & the caters should be fast enough behind the scenes to make it all happen quickly. Sheet cake !

    I went to my friends wedding in April and her cake was GORGEOUS…and I mean gorgeous!! when I had asked her how much she paid for the cake she shocked me with the price because of how big it was!! She told me that the guy who did her cake did foam for the first two bottom tears covered in fondant and then actual cake for the top two. I can get a picture of it if you’re interested so you can get an idea of how big it was but it was very cost effeciant. Plus – not everyone eats the cake so it’s perfect!

    Maybe make something related to go on the slices (or have the baker do it).  Like put a raspberry or a chocolate tab on top of each sheet slice.  Seems like you could easily have the sheet cake covered in a matching glaze too.

    @ekizuna:  hmmm I am pretty detail oriented so I would probably notice but I don’t actually enjoy cake so I wouldn’t care…

    Would it be possible to put the glaze over it or as a little garnish on each piece?

    I’m pretty sure most people just want something to taste good so as long as that’s a priority, I say go for it!

    wouldn’t notice anything as long as the cake was delicious.

    I’d probably notice, because I’m really into cake, but I wouldn’t care.

    Noticing and caring are two different issues :-) . I would notice, but I definitely wouldn’t care!

    hi! i am a pastry chef too. and whille i didnt do my own cake (i had a friend i went to school with do it]. i did the same thing…we had one real tier…the rest were fake and we cut up sheets in the back. although we did it that way because he lived in florida and my wedding was in pennsylvania so it was easier that way. but so far as i know, nobody complained.
