At Bella’s Desserts, the amount of guests dictates how many edible tiers your cake will have as we charge per serving.
If you have 50 guests we recommend a 2 tiered stacked cake. You can do 3 edible tiers, but the tiers will be very small in diameter. If you only have 50 guests and you want your cake to be 5 tiers, we can do that, but several of the tiers will be what we call “dummy” tiers, which are simply styrofoam cakes which we cover and decorate to look the same as the edible parts. The dummies are charged based on size and decoration.
Generally, a 3 tiered cake as seen in most photos on-line and in magazines, generally serve 100.
