Our baker said the smallest 3 tier cake she would make would serve 80, but I can’t remember how big that makes it.

Ours was 6″, 10″, and 14″, which was approximately 125 servings. A picture of it is in the gallery: http://gallery.weddingbee.com/photo/cake-6 As a reference, the champagne flutes in the picture are about 9.5″ tall.

We wanted to use a white cake stand and recreate a cake we saw in a magazine so our bottom needed to be 12. I think it’S going to be 12, 10, 8 If I rembeber correctly. Adding the top tier to freeze was significantly more expensive so we’re sticking with the 3 tiers to feed 100 ppl.

we just met with our cake lady this past weekend… we’re doing a 6′, 10′, 14’… she said there needs to be 4 inches between each layer to make it look even and cohesive…

we are doing a square cake, and 8″ at the top was just too big for us.  We are only having a letter at the top, no flowers… I’m sure with flowers on the top 8 would be fine… so we went with a 4 tier.. 6, 8, 10, 12.

I’m into the taller thinner stacked cakes, or I would have done 6, 10, 14.
