I have a bride with an unusual request. She liked all 4 flavors that I made for her tasting, so she wants them all incorporated in a 4 tier cake...to feed 60...so...some suggestions on what sized to use.

Please keep in mind these are tiers with two layers of cake and a filling.

any and all suggestions would be appreciated.

thanks in advance!

WOW!! I would take that as a huge compliment, since she is paying extra for so much extra cake.

You could do three round 6" on top of one 8". Would look cool if done right. Slight separation between tiers, or one big tall one, with marks only one person knows about, so they can separate them at cutting time.

There are times when it's perfectly ok to tell a bride, "I'm sorry, that design won't work for that small of a group."

You mentioned she wanted 4 different flavors, so using dummies to achieve the 4 tiers is probably not an option.

The smallest three sizes (6, 8 10 round) serves 74. Add a 12, at 56 servings and she's paying for 130 servings.

She either wants 4 tiers with 4 flavors ..... or she wants 60 servings.
