Hi All,
I am new here and would like to get some tips for a beach wedding cake.
I already know what I am going to make but wanted to make sure the quantity will be correct and size of the pans too.
cake should be for 75 people - will a 14", 10" and 6" pan be enough?
(bride might reserve top tier for 1st anniversary).

also, all the recipes I find doesn't say to bake in each pan twice, so, should I just assume I will bake 2 times in each pan, so cake will have 2 layers?!

thank you!

That is more then enough for 75 servings. The top tier is never counted in the servings. That is the bride cake. Some people give that for free and some people charge for that tier. , but never count that in servings. The bottom two tiers will feed the no.# of people for the wedding. Yes you should always bake 2 pans to come to a total of about 4" inches per cake tier. So each layer will be around "4 inches high. It would look bad to have a wedding cake just be one layer. Plus you will fill the middles of the 2 with the desired filling the client wants, so that will also give you some height in the layers also. Hope this makes sense, Good luck thumbs_up.gif
