I have a bride who wants a 4 tier cake, but doesn't want a huge cake. In the past, I have made 3 tier cakes and each tier was 4" bigger than the previous (6, 10, 14"). Is it visually ok to have tiers that are only 2" different (6, 8, 10, 12")? The decorations are very simple, just maybe a ribbon and some daisies cascading down the front.
Thank you in advance!
I prefer the 2" difference and use it whenever possible.
I usually do either a 2" o4 3" difference. The 4" difference looks old-fashioned to me.
It's definately ok. Design styles vary and some look better with a larger ledge ( lots of flowers etc) while others look better with less of a ledge (usually more modern).
Thank you all for the input! I thought the 2" ledge looked more modern, too, but needed the feedback to reaffirm.
