Hello all! I am new to the world a cake decorating, although I have always been an admirer. I was wondering, how do I make the different sized cakes, such as in a wedding cake when all the tiers are a different size. I've never seen tiny cake pans or anything like that.
They make pans in many different sizes. You can check out Global Sugar Art and look at what they have. I personally have about 30 different pans to work with from 6" diameter to 14" dia. then you get into square, rectangles, and many other shapes and sizes.
Welcome to Cake Central and a whole new life. To make different tierres the idea is to use different sizes of cake pans ie., sizes 12 - 8 - 4. There are lots of tutorials here and also Wilton has online help as well as classes.
Feel free to ask us for any help. We're all here for you.
I like using cakes that are 3" in difference. I found that using an 8" and a 6" didn't give me enough room around, I liked it when I used an 8" and a 5".
Good luck and have fun.
