I am about to attempt my first two-tier cake. I am planning to make an 8-inch round tier and a 6-inch round tier. I usually make my 8-inch cakes with three layers. I like the tall appearance of the cake. Question: Should I also make my 6-inch tier three layers so that each tier is the same height? Or will that look too tall?
You're the designer, so you can do what you like. However, I'd make them the same height, because that's the look I like.
