Creating a skinny cake.

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 

I am making a cake for a small wedding, 100 servings. I'd like to make the cake look  a bit sleek since the venue is an historic art deco hotel. So I want to try skinny tiers. I was thinking 11, 10, 9, 8, 6, with the top reserved for the anniversary. 

 

I'm not sure. I've stacked the pans and it looks ok, but I've never done one! 

 

does anyone have an example of a cake they've made with similar dimensions?

These are what I call my tall and towery designs. All 1" difference. Doesn't work with every design, but I love doing these when I can!

Hey, check the order again, I replaced one of the images and I bet it's not the same two now.

LOL just trying to figure out what size your bottom tier rounds  are on the four tier cakes.

Okie dokie, bottom tiers.

Green dotty one was an 8
White with blue pearls is a 7
Written one was 6
Pink rosettes was 8
I am fairly certain of the sizes without digging out contracts.

wow, so those are really skinny!  in your opinion, would a 10 or 11 inch base be too big for this effect?

 

Thank you!!

Definitely, any size, doesn't matter if it's got tiers close to the same size above. Just don't top it off with a huge top tier, but that goes with any cake. icon_biggrin.gif

When are you getting your own show, AZ? Or your own book? Or traveling the world and teaching us mere mortals how to be awesome? Cause all that needs to happen, like yesterday.
