Well after my friend saw the cake I did for my cousin, she asked me to do her wedding cake! She wants a 4 tier stacked, chocolate and white, w/ not a lot of decoration on it. She also needs it to serve around 200 people. My good gosh my head is already spinning and her wedding isn't until June! Any advice for making a cake this big? Thanks girls, you're the best!

Im doing a wedding cake Nov 10 im doing 14-12-8 and then 2 separate 8in cakes you could do 2 10in cakes . and probably get all your servings you can add the 6in for the 4th tier she wanted only 3 tier so thats why i had to do extra 8incs
14 -77
12-56
2 8in -50=183 Your 10in would give you what she needs
Hope this helps
