How would you choose the sizes for this cake?
8,12,16 gives 124 which is closest to what you need
Wilton Wedding chart, http://www.wilton.com/wedding/wedding-cakes/wedding-cake-data.cfm , which is what I go by, shows:
Total = 128 servings. If you don't count the top tier, it's 116 servings.
I use an 8/12/16 for 180 servings.
Here's a link to my website that shows you how to cut a cake to achieve Wilton Wedding servings. I actually get about 10% more servings when cutting it this way instead of the dreaded circle method: http://cateritsimple.com/_wsn/page10.html

Ok, so I didn't use the wilton chart for my sizes since that is the standard that most use please go with the sizing that indydebi gave
sari, that's what makes this a great information site! Lots of different viewpoints so we can get lots of information and select the one that works best for each of us!
Indydeb, I just visited your site to see your cake cutting diagram and from now on that is how I will do it. Thanks so much.
When I do it the Wilton way, I always feel like the pieces are skimpy and sloppy, your way seems much more uniform.
