Just wondering what you guys think. I usually keep a 4 inch difference in my layers. But I'm doing a cake that to get the amount of servings I need (without using a 16 inch pan) I need to do them with only a 2 inch difference. Do you think this looks as good?

A two nch difference between tiers is the current "hot " look. At least it is in wedding world.

I agreee w/you that 4" looks best but as leahs said 2" is acceptable.

I prefer 4" diff, but do 2" diff's all the time. Just to give you some visuals:

Here's a 6/8/10/12/14 cake:

Here's a 6/10/12/16 (mixes the 2" and the 4" spacing):

It's all personal. I prefer 3" difference in my cakes but will do what it needs to get the correct servings.

If you can, it's always a good idea to "build" the cake with your pans or dummies so you can see just what the final will look like.

Some like more of a ledge, some less.
