Do they want a tiered cake or sheet cake or carved cake. You could do a 10" and 8" with a 6" for them to take home to save for their anniversary. You could also add in styrofoam dummy cakes if they want a tiered cake with more than 2 or 3 tiers.

and the difference in sizes can be 2, 3 or 4 inches - a one inch differene doesnt work on every design of cake, but on some it looks good!

They were looking for a tiered round. They didn't specify any certain number of tiers. Would a 10,8,6 be more than 50 servings?? Wouldn't know how to charge based on the 50 requested or the amount of servings it would provided?? I am still new to all this and am so confused!! icon_cry.gif

you charge on the servings provided. as shown on the wilton chart, that combo gives 58 servings.

A 10" and an 8" would be 60 servings and then the 6" I give at no additional charge (included with the original price) as their anniversary cake. I think that's an additional 12 servings according to wilton's wedding cutting chart. 10" is 38 and 8" is 24 servings.
