Hello, I was looking on CC if this question was answered before but I am only seeing how you support a 6 to 7" height cake.


My question is more on serving size. My cakes are usually 4" in height and I use the wilton's serving chart. I will like to make an 8" round cake to be 6" tall but will like to know how many more servings will I get. From the wilton chart, an 8" round cake 4" in height will serve 24 people, any suggestion on how many it will serve with that extra 2" height (if any)?

if you make it two tiers that are three inches tall you can increase your servings that way- stick a board and dowels halfway up--


but servings are determined by the footprint of the cake so you really do not increase servings with one tier that's really tall--except those real tall servings do not fit on the average cake plate either--


you are giving larger servings
