Finished my first baby shower cake this weekend and I got my first wedding cake order in return! Super excited about it.

The bride says she needs a cake that will serve aprox. 150-175 people.

I was thinking about doing a 6, 8, 10, 12 x2 cake but since its my first wedding cake I am not sure of what size layers I need in order to make a cake for that many servings.

Its going to be my first cake with over 2 layers.

Also another question is how would a 6, 8, 10, 12 layer cake look. I do not think I have seen one. Has anyone done one in those sizes?

My brother's wedding cake was a: 6", 8", 10", 12", 14". Maybe this photo would give you an idea of what it would look like, just omit the bottom layer.

Very pretty cake! Thanks for posting the picture.

can I ask without the 14 inch aprox how many servings did the 6,8,10 and 12 cakes serve?

6,8,10,12 will serve 118 if they save the top tier and 130 if they eat it... that is according to Wilton, using 1x2x4 for slice size.
