I'm doing a wedding cake later this week and am wondering if a wedding cake is usually halved and iced or not? Typically we do 2 layer cakes and ice between.

New territory for us here so we are wondering what a typical wedding cake construction involves...

Thanks for your help everyone.

If you are making one 3" layer tier I would definetly torte the cake with some type of filling, it would make the 3" cake a little taller and add some more flavor.

It's a 3 tiered cake on a 3 tier Wilton stand...

First of all, your little fondant figures in your photos are adorable!

Second, if you can, its great if you can torte the 3" cake twice, have two layers of fillings, then the layer of BC/fondant on the outside, then you will have a cake that is 4" high, which is standard wedding height. As far as I know.
