wedding fruit cake tin size?

Hello. I'm making a stacked 3-tier wedding cake for a friend and she would like the bottom tier to be fruitcake. I usually make sponges, and sandwich 2 sponges together to make a nice thick tier. As I've not made fruitcake before I have no idea what size tin to use to ensure a nice thick cake as I'm pretty sure you don't sandwhich 2 cakes together for fruitcake?!!
Can anyone help? I'm planning on using Delia's xmas cake recipe and I need a nice thick 8" tier.
Many thanks, x

Hi
This is going to depend on how many you want to serve and the size of your other cakes as you want the cake to have a flow without too big a jump in size. If your top tier is say 8" then the middle would be around 11" and your bottom 15". I've used those sizes to serve 150. http://www.wilton.com/cakes/tiered-cakes/serving-amounts-all.cfm
This may help. Good luck!
