Hi all. I am making a wedding cake for my sisters wedding in August. Probably be a round 3 tiered cake for about 150 people. I have a few questions:
1. how tall are the tiers traditionally?
2. what size round cake pans should i use?
3. is Satin Ice the best fondant to use?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
Wilton charts say a 8, 12, and 16 inch cakes will serve 156 saving the 8 for the first anniversary. Try searching for cake serving chart to find exactly the numbers you need. Pieces are generally 1 inch by 2 inch and 4 inch tall. Cakes are usually 4 inches in height. The height of your cake really depends on your design as well. Best of luck. HTH
Oh, the fondant question. Satin Ice is really preferred by alot of decorators. You will find several that prefer others, it is what you can work best with. I would use Satin Ice if I didn't have to pay the huge shipping charges as I don't make that many cakes to cover that expense.
