I'm trying to figure out how to do a 3 tiered round cake for 75 guests... is this possible? I came up with 6, 8, 10=60, or 8",12" = 80
Are these the only options?
It doesn't *have* to be 3 tiered, I'm just trying to design a unique wedding cake and am not sure how to do a wedding cake in 2 tiers.
Please, any suggestions would be appreciated.
No, a 6, 8, 10 round is exactly 74. Unless ou go by that other serving chart, which is not a good idea.
Jaime~ thank you. Could you please PM me or link the chart you are talking about? I was looking at a Wilton chart, but I don't think it's the right one...not the one I've used before...
Does anyone have a cutting guide for the linked chart?
I'm confused, because Colette's book says her servings are 1x2x3-4 but her 10" round feeds only 30. One Wilton wedding chart says it feeds 28 another says 38... yet the serving proportions are the same?
I'm missing something...
Just stick with the one I sent you. http://www.wilton.com/cakes/cake-cutting-guides/wedding-cake-cutting-guide.cfm
And it shows 38 servings.
If you charge by the serving, more servings = more money. That's why you would want to use the chart that has the higher servings.
business baby....biiiizzzzz-nasss. lol
Thanks~ I met with the couple tonight and now they want to do a 3 tier cake but a little between 75-80. So, what are my options...??
Can you do a 3 tier 75-80 serving round cake, or pretty close?
It has to be "atleast" 75, but trying to stay around 80ish...
Sorry... My head is spinning...
You could make one of the top tiers larger (I dont have a chart in front of me)...but it will prob come out to more than 80. Your best best is to say I can do a cake for X or Y. One you will a little more, the other will have a little less.
You'll never be able to get an exact amount because at the end of the day, it depends on the person that cuts the cake.
