Wedding Cake Adventure - cake size

I had mentioned a while back that I agreed to make my sister's wedding cake.  The first thing I did was buy a set of pans (at Michaels, with my 40% off coupon).

Now we're considering how big of a cake she should have.  I threw some "prototypes" together so that we could get an idea...

I intend to make some sort of sugary topper ahead of time, but to get an idea for these pictures I just threw on a paper flower bouquet I had lying around.

Standard 3 tier cake - lots of cake!!

Bottom 2 tiers - less cake.  I think it looks a little stumpy.

My personal favorite - the top 2 tiers on a pretty glass cake plate.

What do you think? Which is your favorite look?

  1. I love the one on the stand! If you need a serving guide, I use the one found here to give me some sort of idea of how many servings you will get from cake: http://www.earlenescakes.com/ckserchart.htm
