I have an amazing wedding planner who is basically doing everything for my wedding, shout out to Lauren at Rocky Mountain Weddings lol. Our package came with a 2 tier cake, and when I asked for it to be upgraded to a 3 tier (I like odd numbers) they upgraded us to a 5tier cake at no additional charge!! We are so blessed to have such a great wedding planner, but I’m wondering, is a 5 tier cake too much for a 120-person wedding?? We will be saving the top layer for our anniversary. Any bee have a 5 tier cake? Are they super gigantic, I’ve never seen one in real life. Feel free to post photos, I still haven’t found an inspiration cake that I love.

@Bostonsmom: we are most likely having a 5 tier cake as well for 120 people. because technically its only going to be feeding people with 4 tiers since the top you take home.

The number of tiers doesn’t matter as much as the radius of each of the tiers. You could have a 5 tiers cake with smaller radiuses (ie, tall and skinnier shape) or you could have a 3 tiers cake with larger radiuses (ie, shorter and wider shape) and have them feed the exact same number of people.

we had 5 tiers – our friend made ours – it was quite simple though
it was good to get different flavours…our bottom tier is fruit (kept at home to save for christmas cake as per tradition) but we also had 2 chocolate tiers & two lemon (we could’ve had 4 other flavours but since it was a gift we didnt want to create more work for our friend)

Ours is 3 tier and has 137 servings. It completely depends on the size of the tiers you get.
If you have a smaller diameter on the tiers, you can have more
