6 inch is too small. 8 or 9 inch would be better. I would suggest a 9 over an 8 though.


Edit: Changed 10 to 9 – If you have a 10 inch pan, that might be better too.

Edit #2: See below – a 6 inch and 8 inch is fine but a 6 inch and 9 inch would look better.

@mrstaylortobe:  I think I misunderstood your question. For 20, a 6 and an 8 inch would be plenty. I think that a 6 and 9 looks better though.

Edit to add: I’ve done 6 and 9 inch tiers for my nieces in the past and there was plenty of cake to go around.

Have you ever made a 2 tier cake?  It is not very easy. 

I agree with @MRSsrm85: – 6 & 9 will look better.

BUT, if you make each layer 3-4 layers, beware that the 9″ layer will feed at least 20 people, more like 24.


Honestly, I would do a 4 layer 9″ cake and leave it at that.  My cakes are always about that size, and it usually feeds 20 + people!!  It is a lot of cake!!
