my cousin's wedding is in 1 week and because she loves the cakes me and another one of my cousin make together she asked us to make a 2 tier cake for her.


but the problem is me and my other cousin are 14 (both of us) and we are use to making advanced single cakes but we have no idea about how to make a 2 tier cake so can some one please explain the process and what extra things i will need to make a 2 tier cake thanks! 


kind regards-jellybeanking king.gif

Since the wedding is 1 week away I would suggest staying in your comfort zone and doing multiple single tiered caked on pretty pedestal cake stands. It could look just as nice or even better considering you guys don't have a lot of experience doing multiple tiers. Don't stress yourself out. So much could go wrong with this being your first time AND a family members wedding. Stick to what you know for now and do it well. Then practice on multiple tiers later. Support is the key though. Search around on CC about stacking cakes there's so much info on this topic, but my recommendation would be to not do any new. It's too risky, your cousin should understand.

Hi JellyBeanKing, great advice from Momma's Manna. Sweet tables with an array of single tier cakes on pedestal stands are all the rage at the moment, so definitely go with that.  It's so sweet that you guys are just 14 and making a wedding cake!!! Don't think anyone would have trusted me at that age - but you'll be absolutely fine.  Enjoy it, guys!
