The following are helpful steps in designing your perfect cake but it can be a bit too much information so please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!

1. Number of tiers

Choose whether you want a single tier, two tier or three tier cake (depending on how many servings you need!)

coffee serving size: 1" x 1" x 3.5"
