Hi everyone,
I'm doing my first wedding cake- they only want two tiers (square shaped) so what sizes would you recommend so it doesn't like unproportioned. Any rules of thumb I should know?! Thanks!

First of all you need to find out how many people this cake needs to feed. Keep in mind that the bottom tier will be the only one that gets eaten since the top tier is kept for the bride and groom. Go to wilton.com to check out all their different size and shaped pans and also check out some of their books that will tell you serving sizes and amounts for each pan. Good Luck

As butterfly said, we need to know how many guests are expected before we can help.

thanks Ladies,
they are doing a dessert table but wanted to still have a cake to cut for tradition. They will be having 300 guests but don't need 300 servings of cake. (does that make sense?) So they just want "some" cake slices as an additional option at the dessert table. So I am thinking 2 or 3 tiers. What size would be best for a two tier square or three tier square?
