I'm making a wedding cake in September. The bride emailed me the cake that she wants, and the tiers don't look like they are 2 inches apart (ex: 8, 10, 12 inch round cakes) they seem like they are three or four, so I figured will a 6, 9 and 12 inch round cake look good?

Anything from a 2 to 4 inch difference will work. The 2in differences work is there isn't anything that really needs to sit on the top edges of the cake. 4 works if you have a lot of stuff sitting on those edges.

I would check with her on the number of servings she needs and then the decorations and decide on the cake sizes from there.

I would say 12/9/6 would be fine! You could even go 4" between sizes if you wanted.

Oh and by the way she said it needs to serve 50, so the 6,9 and 12 rounds serves around 78. I thinks she'll be fine with that amount since it's not a final count.

The 6" x 9" x 12" round combo serves exactly 100 (double what the bride needs):

It will look fine with 3" differences, just make sure you're charging for 100 or she can choose a smaller combination.

Earlene says 75, Wilton says 100....I would average it somewhere around 85.
