I was recently asked how many servings are there in a three tier wedding cake. I searched and found it was 128 servings for a 6 inch, 10 inch and 14 inch round. My question is is this a two layer cake or a three layer cake?

 

I made a three layer, three tier wedding cake awhile back and the thing was HUGE! I swear it could feed a small army. That bride was insistant that it be three layers on each tier equaling 5 inches tall. This other bride doesn't seem to care so far.

 

What do you think, does two layers suffice if I can get each layer about two inches tall?

it's all an individual choice--there are no exact rules on anything

 

but yes the two layers two inches tall is very acceptable

Thank you. I know a friend of mine who does cakes says she only does two layer cakes, so I did think it was weird that that one bride insisted on three layers and she said everybody she got quotes from quoted at three layers. Ugh! That cake took forever!

you're very welcome--

 

i mean my tiers usually look like a four layer cake but again just an individual choice
