sizes for cake to feed 150 ppl - Page 2  

post #16 of 21

Jesus K8... it's opinion.  You don't like mine just read on.  I don't like the look, and I am not alone.   Just differing thoughts on aesthetics is all.  I love 4 and 5" top tiers.  I think they look more elegant than a big fat 7" tier.  It's not a personal limitation.  I can do it... I have done it in the past when that is what a client insists on, but you can bet I don't showcase it.  It's not my style.  My favorite cake silhouette is a 4-7-10-13 with all tiers being 5" tall.  I don't like a 2" difference or a 4" difference as much as the 3" difference either.  I don't have to justify why I think 7" top tiers look squatty.  It's just a personal preference.

 

I get that you answered her question in a literal and straight forward manner.  I am not dim.  I just offered a different perspective.  I'm sure you have made plenty of 7" top tiers and no one is telling you to stop.  I don't have to think they are awesome though.

Stack up some dummies... you will see what I am talking about. 
Couldn't agree more!
