I am making a 3 tier cake and I was wondering if it is going to be high enough. Each tier has 2 layers and each tier measures 3 1/4" unfilled and no frosting. All together the cake is about 10" tall unfilled and not frosted.
The topper is almost 6" tall. Will this look funny on the size cake? Maybe I should add another layer to each tier making the cake about 15" tall?
It is a 6,9 & 12" tiers. Adding another layer will make each tier almost 5", is that too tall? I think I'm stuck in the middle, the standard height for the tiers is 4", right?
Please give me advise!!!
Can you add more info about the topper? sorry but I Can't visualize it without a picture or at least a description of the topper.
Once you fill and ice, your tiers will be closer to 4 inches. How big (diameter) is your top tier? How wide is your topper? One way to get a quick visual is to stack your pans - even if you have to use a couple of books between them to acheive the correct height. Put your topper onto the top pan and that will at least give you some perspective on how it will look.
By the time you add your filling and buttercream or fondant there should be enough height you would think. I guess I would feel fine with 4" cake tiers, with a 6" topper...But thats just my thoughtsssssssss
It looks so much bigger in the picture
Proportions look good! Now knock it out of the ballpark!
yep, i wouldnt go bigger
I think it looks good. Once you fill and ice it will be taller but it looks good as it to me. Make sure to dowl well to hold the topper though.
I think it looks wonderful! (although I personally would never have the occasion or inclination to order a "hunting couple in camo" cake. he he he)
You did a great job. I like the cake board too!
You might be a redneck if....lol! The cake looks awesome. I wouldn't change a thing
Looks great Kerry! It looks so so similar to the other cake. I love it. Btw, where did you get the tree thingy stand?
Thanks Rylan! Remember when I told you I was feeling down even when the MOB called to say how great the cake was? This was the cake, I wasn't completely happy with it. It doesn't look anything like the picture. But I do believe the other cake is airbrushed. I never even took a video of this cake. The tree stump was cut by the groom. I told them the exact size to cut and they did a great job. The cake is actually on a cake drum. It's the exact same size as the bottom cake, so it's not on the wood. I did the delivery and set up. I was a little more happy with it once it was set up.
Oh it's awesome!
Kerry you should totally be happy with this. I actually had to go check the other picture when I saw the cake that you made because I thought it was the same cake but a different topper =]
