I want to make a cake like this, 4 layers stacked construction. I think these layers are 14, 12, 10, & 8. Am I correct? I need 100 servings, but want a base layer 14".I don't know who did this particular cake, but it's absolutely gorgeous. Any assistance is greatly appreciated!

the top layer looks like an 8" to me so I think you are correct in thinking 8,10,12,14. However, depending on which chart you use that is way more than 100 servings! 196 servings if you go by Wilton.

You want 4 tiers, with the bottom one at least a 14" round right?
And only need 100 servings? No can doicon_smile.gif
UNless you use a styro dummy for the lgst tier.

I have a Wilton chart (taped to the inside of my cabinet door) and for the 'party' servings I count 106 (using 14", 12", 10" & 8") and for wedding servings 127. I'm using the party chart. Am I adding wrong or something? My chart says 14"=40, 12"=30, 10"=24, 8"=12, total 106.

My biggest concern was the width of the layers and the fact I usually use sizes like 14", 10", 6", to get the bigger rim around each tier. This picture looks much smaller and I wanted to make sure I was looking at it right.

Thank you to all who answered icon_biggrin.gif .
