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.

Thank you. icon_smile.gif

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... icon_confused.gif

Thank you. icon_smile.gif

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? icon_confused.gif
I'm missing something... icon_redface.gif

thank you.

Just stick with the one I sent you.

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... icon_confused.gif

Sorry... icon_redface.gif 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.
