Hi all - first post.
By trade a Display manager at a fireworks company, but am making and decorating a wedding cake for a friend (next year)
The cake I wish make is going to be 4 tiers - rich fruit cake for all tiers.
Fondant iced - not Royal Icing.
Bottom 2 tiers I want to be bottom = square - then round.
Then 4 pillars
Then the same again for the top 2 square bottom - round top.
Around 200 guests - finger portions. No problem going too large in order for things to look right.
Am trying to figure out what cake sizes I need to make as I want to get them done this year.
I know there are portion diagrams out there - I was wondering more of the visual look with sizing - as the pillars will break up the pyramid.
tell me please what size serving is a finger size?
-k8memphis - well traditionally in Canada anyway- wedding fruitcake used to be about 1 inch in diameter by about 3 inches high. It will be interesting to see if that is what is meant. I know my wedding cake 44 years ago was 3 inch high fruit cake that Mom baked and I had decorated but my mother insisted on it filling the little boxes that were fashionable in those times...lol.
Buy yes, you need to know to picture what would look proportionate.
