I have been asked to do a wedding cake to feed 160-180 people. They want it done in rounds. What would be the best pan sizes to use to get that number of servings? Seems like it would have to be alot of tiers unless they went with a kitchen cake also. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Personally I prefer the look of 16, 12, 9(or 10), 6 which would yield 175-182 w/o the top tier.

Hi, in my oven the biggest cake that I can bake is a 12" cake. I also have to do a wedding cake for 160. So I was thinking of doing a 12"/9"/6" cakes. I like to have a 3" gap between the tiers. And I have to do another 8" fruit cake.

6/9/12/15 = 185. I do a lot of those.
