I’m super picky about cake, hate fondant, artificial flavor/color, and other things you find in traditional wedding cakes. The best bakery in our wedding location didn’t do tiered cakes. I decided I cared more about taste than I did looks, and went for a pretty cake table. We picked out 4 different flavors, and they made different round cakes and laid them out. There was a gorgeous fruit topped one, a dense chocolate one, etc. People came up all night and said it was the best wedding cake they had ever had.

What about getting a small “fancy” cake just for cutting (and for your topper of course) and have the sheetcake in the back to serve to everyone? There are brides on this board who have done that before. (The sheetcake will probably taste better anyway!)

You could easily have them do a variety of single layer cakes, and make them look fancy on a table using cake stands and decorations. That way you still get the nice connection to the bakery, and some very tasty cakes.

Why not have them do a small round cake decorated to your preference for cake cutting then have their sheet cake in the kitchen to be cut for guests?

or… do a small bridal cake elsewhere and have a sheet cake of theirs for the grooms cake.

or have a fake foam cake made for pictures… you can do a real top tier for cutting then have their sheet cake in the kitchen for serving.

bayoubee :  This is a great idea. 

I am a big believer in having a better tasting cake than a mediocre cake that looks prettier. I think most people agree.

Many, many coupes have a small cake on a pedestal cake stand for cutting, and use sheet cake with the same frosting and look, to serve the guests.

I would do a small cake on a pedestal for cutting, surrounded by cupcakes. Or a tiered arrangement of cupcakes.

Or optionally, just order individual rounds (or whatever shape you’d want your tiers) from them and stack it yourself. There are tons of videos on how to do this.

If they still do cupcakes why not order a variety of flavours and then get a cupcake stand to display them for pictures and then u can either get a really small cake to cut.

Maybe you could have them do something like this?

I agree that they can do a small round to cut and sheet cakes in the back cut for guests. If you want tiered, ice foam rounds and only the top layer will be real. 

I also want to say, now I desperately want cake.

I really like the idea above with the three cakes on stands. Looks great and easy to transport.

Get three different sized sheet cakes. You could do different flavours for each sheet cake tier. It helps that you know and like the bakery. I’m sure you could rent a stand from somewhere, they may even know a place.

We used a sheet cake from our local grocery store. It wasn’t very fancy but it tasted great.
