Has anyone heard of doing a 3 tier smash cake? I don't even know how I would go about it, what sizes would I even use?

I think I should I just say no, and suggest a 6" only. Or do people do small tiers for smash cakes now?

I'm an 'over the top' kind of gal... and that seems a little over the top to me!! Unless you want to do a single layer like 6-4-2... or maybe even 4-2-1... but that may be a bit of a pain to carve the cakes that small. ?? Good question though, I'm interested to hear what people say, I've never hear about anything other than the 6' smash cakes.

A three tier cake is going to look like a wedding cake. The reason for doing a smash cake is so that the baby can stick his/her fingers all over it and that's why you keep it small. If you make it a three tier you'll need to put dangerous things in it to keep the cake stable. Things a small child may choke on.

Maybe somebody doesn't understand what a smash cake is?

Last year I made a HUGE 3 tiered cake for my great-nieces first birthday. I also made a 4 inch smash cake. It was the perfect size. I can't imagine a 3-tiered smash cake. What a waste.

Great point about making it stable, and that being a choking hazard!
