    8 inch and 6 inch square cakes would serve more then the round cakes.  could you have 8 inch 6 inch two tier round cakes with normal ingreiants on both sides of the table and have your glutten free two tier square cake in middle of the table on a platform.

    What if you purchased a cake stand (4 or 5 tiers high) that separates the actual tiers? Then it would only be one tier on each tray but they would still be stacked tall with the smallest tier at the top..

    Use Styrofoam layers to give the look of 4-5 tier cake?  Top 2 layers are cake, the rest is fake. Have sheet cake in the back to serve to the guests. Just to add another option into the mix…..

    bottom 2-3 as fake layers, one ‘normal’ layer, and the top layer gf/df so you can eat a piece once you cut into it.

    then have sheet cake for the rest of it.

    simples 🙂

    Get a faux cake with only the center tier real cake. 🙂 bottom two tiers styrofoam covered in fandant, middle layer real, top two layers styrofoam covered in fandant. Then have sheet cakes in the back to cut. 🙂

    @FutureMrsSarah:  I agree with doing the fake cake layers and the others real.

     

    I prefer round, but I think it’s all personal taste

    Are you serving everyone gf/vegan cake? Or do you want regular cake for most people and gf/vegan for yourself? If the latter I would say have your big cake and just make the top tier gf/vegan. But I’m not sure how sensitive your allergies are.

    @FutureMrsSarah:  There are lots of stands that give the look of a tiered cake, but the stand holds all the weight. Some are decorative, some are “invisible”. If you’ve always dreamed of a multi-tiered cake, maybe look into a stand.

    Do the entire cake gluten and dairy free. There are plenty of great bakeries that can do it now.

     

    My entire wedding will be gluten free breads, cakes, pasta, sauces, etc.

    To everyone suggesting the top tier is the gf df layer this is a HORRRIBLE IDEA. Cross contamination is a huge issue with allergies and celiac disease. She will get sick. I had a local cake company that supposedly does suggest this at a bridal expo and I went off at the manager. I will NEVER buy anything gluten free from this company. If a company is suggesting to me that this is what they do and that its safe they’re idiots. I made it very clear this might be great for somone who chooses to be Girlfriend but it is 100% NOT OK for a celiac. Cross Contamination = poison. I wouldnt put arsenic in your cake please dont put gluten in mine.

    Can you avoid cross contamination by having a layer of flowers between the Girlfriend cake and the non Girlfriend ?
