I need some input. I have done cakes for a few years now and I am perplexed as to what I am doing wrong. When I look at stacked cakes they always look so tall and graceful but when I make a stacked cake they tend to look squat and chunky. I always do 2 layer tiers that are made using my 2" pans What I want to know is the size tiers you generally put together. I am making a wedding cake this weekend for my BFF and I want to keep it from having the heavy look I am talking about. We are serving about 80 people so I was going to do a round 6', 10" and 14" cake. I also plan to do 3 layers per tier. What would you suggest? Would you use 2" or 3" pans? I can alter the size of my tiers and the number of layers to suit.
