I have a question for you all. I am making a 3 tier cake this weekend for a little girl who loves bugs. My bottom tier will look like grass, the second tier will be a tree stump and the top tier will be a mushroom hut. The cake needs to feed 40, the top is to take home for the actual birthday and the bottom two are for the party. 10 and 8 would be perfect but I'm not sure if it will be enough room to incorporate enough bugs so then I was thinking a 10 inch square and 8 inch round but that's way too much cake, 10 and 6 inch rounds are not enough. What would you guys make?
How about making the sq a single layer - that would give you about 25 servings (2x2x2) while there would be 25 servings from the 8x4 (1x2x4).
It gives just a b it more than you need but that way if they don't cut it exact they should not run out
