...a chart that shows how much filling you need for different size cakes? I'm trying to figure out how much filling I need for a wedding cake, and can't find a chart of this type on google. TIA

I don't think there is such a thing. It depends if you are torting into many layers or just putting 2 layers together. It also might depend a bit on what you are using as filling.

Round 5"- 1/4 cup
Round 6"- 1/3 cup
Round 7"- 2/3 cup
Round 8"- 3/4 cup
Round 9"- 1 cup
Round 10"- 1 1/4 cups
Round 11"- 1 1/2 cups
Round 12"- 1 3/4 cups
Round 14"- 2 1/3 cups
Sheet Cake 9 x 13"- 1/2 cup
