Torte or bake 2 layers?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey all....I haven't been on here for a while. But I have a question for my first paid wedding cake. The customer wants a hexagon 4 tier stacked cake. My question...for each 12", 10", 8" and 6", do I bake a single layer and torte, or do I bake 2 of each size? Thanks !

Are you sure you're ready to make a wedding cake? A tier is usually two 2" tall layersjust like the layer cake in your gallery.
HOW TO:
Make tip #127D (giant rose tip) Ruffle cake,
Write with icing,
Make buttercream roses on a stick:

Almost all of my cakes, both tiered wedding and regular layer cakes are the same. Each tier is composed of 2 layers and each layer is torted. That way each tier has 4 layers of cake and 3 layers of filling. Most tiers end up being at least 4 inches high. when they are complete.
Hope this helps.
