I have a last minute order for a wedding cake. For some stupid reason I wasn't thinking of how it would look to make an 8 and 14 inch together. It looks so unbalanced any ideas how to fix this? The only thing they asked for is 100 servings, fall colors, and simple design. Does anyone have any pics of this size cake or any suggestions?

Would it be possible to put some decor around the base of the 8 inch to give it more diameter. So it actually looks larger then it really is. Maybe some fall leaves with an acorn or two. HTH.

Do you have an 11 inch cake dummy you could place between the two tiers to balance out the shape? Would this be acceptable?

Maybe put the 8" off center (off to one side) then put draping or leaves,acorns,pumpkins etc down the sides of both cakes on the portion of the cake with the extra space?

Since they only asked for 100 servings, the design is your choice? Surely there are other options for 100 servings! You may have talked to them about an 8 and a 14, but how about a phone call to them with your concerns and another size suggestion that will still serve 100?

6/9/12 = 100 servings and is symmetrical.
