I am making a burberry themed cake which needs to serve 70 people. I plan on makeing it a three tiered cake? Any suggestions on the size of the tiers?

I will be covering it in fondant, so does anyone know how much fondant I will need with the sizes of the cakes?

Thank you, this website has been a big help!

You choose the size of the tiers by how many servings you need. Use the Wilton wedding charts if it's a wedding cake or the Wilton party charts if its a party cake. ( You will have plenty of cake. There is a chart for how much fondant to use on the Satin Ice website (

That said, a 6/8/10 round will do fine.
