hi i need some help please. what size is best for a 3 tier  square wedding cake and a 2  tier square  wedding cake? i suggest 6, 10, and 14 but the customer says that size is too big. another thing she wants a plain cake but want it covered in fondant. but i think the fondant can be a bit too heavy for this cake. i urgently await you response thank you.

you have not given enough information to give an answer--how many servings do they need?


what country are you in?

i mean a cake can be any size--if 6 x 10 x 14 is too big--do a 6 x 9 x 12 or whatever is smaller right?

maybe a 6 x 8 x 10 or a 5 x 8 x 11--just depends on what she wants--


what kind of cake are you making that will not hold up under fondant? most cakes will hold up but not all--what are you wanting to use?


have you covered a cake in fondant before?

Why does the customer want a cake that's not being served to the guests?

@K8memphis thank you i think i am going 6"   9"  12". it is a plain cake but i have never used fondant on it before i only use the fondant on fruit cakes.

@leah_s the 3 tier cake is cut only by the couple. the cake that the guest receive is boxed before the wedding.

thats how we normally do it here
