Hello,

I was asked to make a topsy turvy cake for a sweet sixteen. The cake has to serve 100. My question, is it possible to make a 3 tier topsy turvy for 100 servings or should I just make it 4 tiers? What size cakes should I use for 3 tiers or 4 tiers if the 3 tiers is not possible?

Thanks!!

the wilton chart is
12in =40
10in = 28
8in=20
for a total of 100 only 3 tiers though you could do a 14 10 6 this would give you room on the top of each ledge of cake, for a total serving of 103. still only 3tiers though what size pans do you have do you have odd sizes ?

I was thinking 12,10,8 but it only serves 88. I have mostly even sizes, but I could buy odd sizes. I called bakery around my area I wanted to see how much they would charge for a topsy turvy. They told me if the cake had to serve 100 it had to be 4 tiers. I that true? Is it easier to make it 4 tiers because it's easier to work with smaller tiers?
