I know there's got to be a thread on here on what size pans to use for a 200 serving round wedding cake but I can't seem to find it. Can anyone help? I am way out of my league on stacked cakes. I've only done a few. Anyone in Cincinnati wanna do a wedding cake for May 9?

Wedding Cakes are completely out of my league, but if you need help, or someone to talk cakes with in Cincy, let me know. I started doing cakes for family/friends and have taken the first 2 Wilton courses, starting the 3rd in a week or so. What (specifically) do you need help with for the wedding cake? Let me look around, maybe I can find the servings thread...

can't find what I'm looking for quickly. If I'm remembering correctly, the easiest way is to look at a serving chart (wilton's or one of the tempaltes in the gallery) and add up the servings per tier until you get to the number of servings you need. you can go off this chart, there are others, but this is what I found quickly

tmt, thanks for that link! I viewed earlene's chart once, but misplaced the link and couldn't remember how to spell her name correctly to find it again! I will print that out and add it to my info. Question, what sized servings does this chart yield and can anyone better explain how they came up with the serving numbers in columns F & G?

Thanks mirda6275! Wedding cakes make me very nervous I have done only one and a few party stacked cakes. It's the stacking that terrifies me. Not to mention the one wedding cake that I did do was for family and it was a three tier that served about 140, I'm thinking that a 200 serving cake is four tiers and I'm terrified. It's not like you can just go to Kroger and pick up a last minute wedding cake if something happens.

Here's a few links I found that might help, too: (150-ish servings) (200 servings) (175-225 servings)

And don't worry about it being 4 tiers. If you can stack 3, then you can stack 4 ... or 5 .... or more. You'll be fine.
