I will need to make a wedding cake for a small wedding (50 people?). It is a two tiered cake with pink roses and chocolate shells. I'm thinking an 8 inch top tier and a 10 inch bottom tier, or maybe a 6 inch top tier and a 10 inch bottom tier. Please help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It sounds like you are on the right track. What shape are the tiers? What help do you need? There are lots of experts and ameteurs alike who would love to help you out.
Yes, what shape do you plan to use? Round, square, heart? I think that always makes a difference.
I just did a 2-layer for a baby shower tonight of 50+ people.....I did a 12 inch/3 inch deep for the bottom, and a 8 inch/3 inch deep for the top....it is square and looks like more than enough.
I plan to use round cake layers with 4 columns between the top and bottom tier. The cake will be vanilla buttercream with chocolate shells on the sides and pink roses between the layers and on tops with some more shells. I just want to make sure their is enough cake since I am making this for a friend of mine so she is only paying for supplies. I keep on thinking maybe I should go with an 8-inch top layer and a 10-inc h bottom layer. What do you think?
I know a 6 and 10 round serves 50 going by the wilton chart. But since you are doing if for a friend, and are worried about there being enough cake, the 8 and 10 should do just fine. That should get you 62 servings.
