Making a princess cake for a birthday but they want to feed 30 people. Two layer round would be prettiest to decorate but Sheet cake would feed everyone. I don't know how to stack multiple cakes, Can anyone help me?

Hi there, if you want to make a two tier cake, you can do it. If you make an 8" round and a 6" round, it will give you 31 portions. That is according to the cake portion guide I use.

This is how I do my cakes. Bake the cakes two days before. Example - for saturday, bake thursday. When the cakes are cooled down, torte and fill. I leave it overnight to settle. Then on friday, crumbcoat and cover it with fondant or ice it with buttercream. Then you need to dowel the 8" cake. I would use 4 wooden dowels, or you can use bubble tea straws too. Then stack the 6" cake on the top. Then you can start decorating the cake. If you have any models to make, make them a week in advance.

Here are some great tutorials from Wilton on stacking cakes.
