I have a customer who is wanting a tiered cake and she wants 6 tiers!! The most i've ever done is 4. Can you even deliver a 6 tiered cake without it falling over? She wants it stacked with no pillars or anything in between. Thanks in advance for the advice.
A8. But no way in heck would I transport it fully assembled. First 4 tiers yes, and after that, the rest get stacked on site.
because of the weight---will probably be too heavy to handle--unless it's really petite--could probably do a 4x6x8x10x12x14--but that's a lot of cake--a 4x5x6x7x8x9* would be a snap--depends on the serving amount--a 3x5x7x9x11x13 would also work delivered stacked--
or if you have a couple really short tiers--that would decrease the weight too--or if they were all short tiers
tons of variables--
* stacked asymmetrically
how many servings?
Most I've stacked is 5 tiers. I couldn't even move it across the counter, though, let alone carry it. Fortunately, my husband was available to help!
I can just about carry a 3 tier... anything bigger I need to get my hubby to carry for me.
AI did 7 tiers for my wedding cake and only had bubble tea straws for support (and 3 full dowels down the center). I didnt have to drive with it - just get it from my hotel suite to the reception site (in the hotel) and I was a nervous wreck! The bellman moved it for me on a luggage cart and I walked beside it with my hand holding it steady. If I would have had time (or wasn't in a wedding dress), I would have done it a a 4 tier and a three tier and assembled on site. If I had to drive with it, i'd have had a coronary or an accident, no doubt.
Assemble on site! Don't put yourself through that kind of stress.
I have to go with the others who say to assemble on site!! There would be less stress on you that way!!
I've done several 7 tiers and a bunch of 6 tiers. And no I can't lift a monster cake like that. Even with SPS I assemble on site when they are that big.
