How many layers per tier do most of you use for your wedding cakes..does it depend on the height you want, personal preference and of course the customer. Or do you mix them up; for instance your bottom tier will be two layers, middle tier 3 layers.. Just curious...

All cakes of mine are 4 layers of cake, three layers of filling. Did you try a search? This question has been asked many times.

I've found torting with 3 or 4 layers has less bulging. I think doesn't occur as much if there are 4 one inch layers with 3 layers of thin icing. However, I do 2 layer cakes with 1 layer filling too. I'm more concerned about getting it the height that I need.

I almost always bake two layers ,torte each one once and end up with four layers of cake and three layers of filling.
