I'm doing a 3 tier wedding cake plus a sheet cake to feed what the wedding cake can't. My question is, how many layers you would suggest I do for the sheet cake. They are going to be 1 1/2 inches each layer.
I'm doing 3 layers for the 3 tier cake. Should I do 3 for the sheet cake as well or would 2 layers do?
It really depends what the bride wants/is paying for. But my opinion, make the sheet cake as identical to the tiered cake as you can (so you can't tell the difference sliced), that way people aren't wondering why some are getting the 'good' cake..
I agree with idjitmom - I always do my "kitchen cakes" the same as the wedding cake. It makes it extremely obvious that some guests aren't getting "wedding cake" when their cakes aren't even the right height!
I also think the pcs of sheet cake should look like the wedding cake pcs. But, you could probably get away with two layers.. no one would notice.
