I gotta do a two tier stacked cake for 30 people. I have been going back and forth about what size will be good. Should I do two 10in rounds for the bottom and two 8in rounds for the top or two 8in rounds for the bottom and two 6in rounds for the top. Each round will be split and frosted so when their stacked it will be four layers of cake with icing in between. Help, what do you guys think??

I get 30 servings exactly from a 5", 7" stacked combo. (10 servings for the 5", 20 servings for the 7"). I also split the cakes, so each cake is 4 layers of cake (1" each) and 3 layers of filling.

The only round pans i have are 6, 8 and 10 though, so i need to know how to get 30 from these that i have in a two tier.

You can't always get the number exactly. I say "I can make cake for xxx amount of servings". They either buy more or less.

Yeah, I agree. Make a 6", 8" (serves 36 for me) and tell them the price for that size. Lots of times they are excited to have a little leftover anyway!
