I am doing a Baby Blocks cake for a friend's shower (yey! my first non-family cake). Thinking it will be three tiers of different sizes. The cake needs to feed 60-80 people. What size squares do you think would be best?
Thanks for your help!
The easiest way is to make one single block, from two 8" square tiers. Here's my favorite one I've done. Served 60. http://www.flickr.com/photos/yuma_couture_cakes/4178443825/in/set-72157622502090514
I have done them in 6x6 as well, and 10x10. For the 10x10, I used a 10" square tier, and a 10" dummy, and made up the difference with a layer of 1/2 thick foam core under the bottom dummy layer. For an 8x8, you would separate and support the top tier with a board slightly smaller, like 7 1/4 inches, so you can smooth the sides without the board showing. It's basically making a double barrel cake. http://www.flickr.com/photos/deliciously_decadent/sets/72157621850372685/with/3798619197/
