I have a bride who knows exactly what cake she wants, however, she would like to see a photo of a wedding cake which a 12" cake is the biggest tier.
She's concerned her cake will look too small.
I've never done any with a bottom that size and have tried to search the galleries but most don't have tier size listed.
Does anyone have a pic or a link to a cake this size?
Here is one I did. The sizes are 12, 10, 8, and 6. HTH!
I've made a few cakes with the 12 inch as the bottom tier. I used... 6 inch, 9 inch, then a 12. Just look in my photo's the Twilight cake and the Mom's 60th birthday cake. They are birthday cakes and not wedding cakes but you get the idea.
I know it won't be what she is looking for, but if you go into my gallery, the "wedding cake" (it was really for a piano recital) that has red, white and blue swags has a 12" base, and 8" top tier. They are separated by columns, though.
Hope this helps.
Oh, also, it was one of my first cakes.
this is 6/9/12 and the base is 16....it does not look small
hope this helps
I've done quite a few cakes with 12in bottoms, as people tend not to have huge weddings here. Most of my cakes are a 6,9,12in combo with 70 (dessert) - 100 (wedding) servings from round tiers.
Hope that helps!
this is a cake with the wilton seperators, with the flowers in between. the bottom layer is 14 inches, but you can make it higher if you put flowers in between.
The second cake is 12,10,8, and 6...it was a lovely size...
Also it helps if you use a plateau....
I have a wedding cake in my photos (my first, and probably my only - too much stress) which was a 6, 9, and 12. This cake stood almost 20" tall when I was finished. These are 6" tall tiers. If she is worried about size, make the tiers higher like I did.
Hope this helps!
A 6-8-10-12 doesn't look small at all..
that is one that I did.. it was a great sized cake..
Even a 6-8-10 isn't TEENY.. a 6-9-12 is good too. Now a 4-6-8 is small..
Mine in my photos aren't the best example but none of mine are over 12" on the bottom tier. Believe me, when I packed these things they weren't small after all!
This is a 6/8/12 and it's sitting on top of an 18" fountain plate/stand. Lots of large flowers fill the space. http://forum.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1280470
Here's a 6/8/12 with no pillars: http://forum.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1232880
