I just want to make a wedding cake but just to see if I can do it (not for anyone). But I have a couple of questions.

The deep cake pans (I believe it is 4 inches deep) how can a cake possibly bake properly all the way thru in those pans?

Or, I could use my 2 inch pans and make each tier two layers. Surely there isn't a "norm" but what do you all do?

An I guess I would do 12", 8" and 4" tiers. Does that sound about right?

me too. i just like to practice now and then. i have dummies though for this little adventure. i'd use the 2" pans and stack them with filling in the center though if you want to use real cake. now, if i can find 10 minutes to myself, maybe i can start on this as well! lol good luck!

I think 2" pans are the norm. And some people use 3".

Also, if they are larger cakes (10 inches or bigger), use a baking core...Otherwise they cook unevenly or burn on outside but inside not all the way done.
