Hi, I have a cake due Saturday and it is a stacked 2 tiered cake, round. What size should I use on the bottom and top rounds to get 50 servings (or close to that)??

Thanks!

I follow Earlene's chart... it's so easy to figure out your servings.

http://www.earlenescakes.com/ckserchart.htm

a 10 and 8 will give you 45 servings... can you do three tiers, if so, you can add a 6 inch for 53 servings. Otherwise you need to bump up to 12 inch and 6 inch for 53 servings but I think that might look weird, maybe a 12 and 8inch but that's too much cake. I think the easiest thing to do is just make a three tier...

I use the Wilton chart.

10" = 39/40 servings
8" = 25 servings

total 64/65 servings.

For me is:

10" = 38 servings
6" = 12 servings

Thanks for all the help! I used a 10 inch double on the bottom and a 6 inch double on the top. Thanks!!
