I am confused! Are the seving sizes on Earlene's Cakes website for one or two layer cakes? And...just to make sure that I understand, a two layer cake is actually TWO cakes stacked with filling in between. Right? Not one cake cut in half with filling. Right?

Thanks, kakeladi! What if I just did one layer torted with filling. Would I just cut the amount of servings in half? That may be a stupid question with an obvious answer, but for some reason, I can not wrap my brain around this!
I am making a cake next week that nees to serve 30. They want a tiered cake, each a different flavor, and I am trying to get it as close to 30 as possible. I was thinking about doing a 1 layer 10"/8"/6" rounds, but was wondering if anyone out there knows how many that would feed.
