I need ideas, I am making a small stacked (2 tiers) wedding cake, to roughly feed 25-30 people. I would prefer round since I have the pans already, but I would be willing to buy square also.

I tried searching the gallery, but I can't find many. So show me any small wedding cakes you have done...look for somethign fairly simple, as its a second wedding and the bride is on a limited budge.

One of my faves. If I recall correctly it was a 6" and an 8".

Look at the 3 tiers and just forgo the bottom tier. Same cake, smaller size. And there are SO many 3 tiered wonders to be amazed with on this site! icon_smile.gif

Very pretty cake chutzpah!

This is two small tiers (6 inch and 8 inch) --winter themed, but could be adapted...

edited to add "winter themed."

Here is one I did, It fed more people but you can adjust the servings

a very small cake - I made it to serve 16.

Could easily change to a two layer 8 inch and 1 layer 6" that would serve 30 by my servings.

I also love this one by the pink cake box... a lot of gumpaste work though if she is on a tight budget

This is one is a 6" & 8" square, but could easily be done in rounds.

Here's a pic of a small one I did..I believe it was a 10/6....very simple and inexpensive to make...a few flowers, ribbon and peals....

Just don't pay close attention to the icing on the bottom tier....should have done a better job smoothing....thought flowers would cover it better...

Here's a small one I did recently. 6",8", and 10" tiers. I even used a dummy for the 10", the couple kept the 6", and all the guests had's that for your small wedding! lol icon_wink.gif

There are a dozen of the Wilton tiered class cakes on here with varying colors and such. My friend saw one that I did where I adjusted the top tier a bit using a different design from the book. She wanted that for her small wedding (also a second wedding).

If she's a little less traditional for her second wedding, I think the bride and groom cakes are cute. Here's one I did for a bridal shower this summer.

I forgot about this one. Also a 6" & 8" rounds, done in a chocolate wrap.
