I'm wondering if a 6" and a 10" round stacked cake would be enough cake for 40 people or would I be better to go with a 8" and 12" round stacked cake?

Here is Wilton's chart with serving amounts for different sizes of cakes.

No, it's not, unless you're trying to cut them in pie-wedges instead of cake-pieces.

Here's my website that shows you how to cut a round cake to acheive the wilton wedding servings. It's based on the industry standard of 1x2x4" pieces. See the cut pieces of cake in the link ... notice they are NOT paper thin. http://cateritsimple.com/_wsn/page10.html

Here's a table full of wedding cake pieces that I cut at one of my weddings. Again .... 1" is NOT paper thin. http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1156785

Thanks Indydebi! This really helps. I think I've been cutting cake slices WAY too big because I find that some of it just ends up in the garbage anyway. I'm thinking the 6" and 10" round stacked will do just fine. By the way, thanks for your AMAZING all crisco buttercream recipe. It is terrific!
