AIm wondering what everyone feels is a good cake ratio, meaning if i have an 8 inch tier on the bottom what would you personally put next? 7? 6? 5? etc wondering how you guys look at it. I generally will keep a 2 inch comfort. Meaning if I have 8 inch on the bottom the next will be 6 for the middle and so on. Any thoughts? Just curious how everyone else looks at it.
AI do understand with customer needs for certain servings or designs it could very to a untraditional look or sizing. Im wondering what you personally feel looks good.
A lot depends on the cake design. Generally speaking, I prefer 3-4 inches difference in tier size, especially if the cake is only two or three tiers.
Just for the sake of the silhouette I think it's very important to have the odd sized cake pans. 15, 13, 11, 9, 7, 5 round and square. I think I like 3 inches best but depends on style and needs as you say.
I also like 3" differences, but I only use rounds. I found when doing wedding cakes that 6/9/12/15 was one of my most popular order sizes.
AThank you for your imput! Always interesting hearing how others do things! :D
I do lot of 2" differences, but it depends on how many servings the client needs.
