Serving sizes for a three tier wedding cake

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I was recently asked how many servings are there in a three tier wedding cake. I searched and found it was 128 servings for a 6 inch, 10 inch and 14 inch round. My question is is this a two layer cake or a three layer cake?

 

I made a three layer, three tier wedding cake awhile back and the thing was HUGE! I swear it could feed a small army. That bride was insistant that it be three layers on each tier equaling 5 inches tall. This other bride doesn't seem to care so far.

 

What do you think, does two layers suffice if I can get each layer about two inches tall?

it's all an individual choice--there are no exact rules on anything

 

but yes the two layers two inches tall is very acceptable

Thank you. I know a friend of mine who does cakes says she only does two layer cakes, so I did think it was weird that that one bride insisted on three layers and she said everybody she got quotes from quoted at three layers. Ugh! That cake took forever!
