8,12,16 gives 124 which is closest to what you need icon_smile.gif

Wilton Wedding chart, http://www.wilton.com/wedding/wedding-cakes/wedding-cake-data.cfm , which is what I go by, shows:
6=12 servings
10=38 servings
14=78 servings
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 icon_sad.gif since that is the standard that most use please go with the sizing that indydebi gave icon_smile.gif

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.
