Customer can't decide between the options I gave her and wants to know which one will give the biggest "wow"

A - 2 layer sheet cake

B - 6" & 9" tiered plus a 1 layer sheet cake

C - 6" & 9" tiered plus 4 dozen cupcakes on 2 cupcake stands

What do you think?

To me option C .... I always think tiered cakes have more WOW to them.

How many servings does she want and what is she willing to pay? Because the last option is more cake than the first isn't it?

Tiered always has more WOW than sheet cakes. How big were your sheet cakes going to be?

definately C! sheet cakes tend not to give the same wow factor and when a display take up more room, it seems more impressive to the eye

Thanks everyone! I agree that C is the best, but she mentioned she didn't think she wanted cupcakes so I wanted some more ammo before I go back to her!

Besides, I think she is thinking of cupcakes and I am going to explain I mean CUPCAKES!

If it takes an extra 4 dozen cupcakes to get the servings, why not make the tiers larger or add a tier?
Anyway, I'm with the rest: C is much more impressive.
