I am making a wedding cake next Saturday and the cake needs to feed 75-100 ppl. The couple is really young and I have agreed to make the cake for basically just the ingredients and not for my time. When I look in my Wilton yearbook for how much cake to make for 100 ppl it looks like I should make a 4 tiered cake. But from remembering back to my wedding a little over a year ago, we had the same amount of ppl and a 3 tiered cake and had plenty of cake left over. Now granted I didn't pay attention to whether or not everybody had some cake, but does 4 tiers sound too much for 100 ppl??

I forgot to mention that the cake would be 6", 8", 10", and 12" in circle pans. Thanks!

I get 118 servings just for the 8" 10" & 12" ..... Do they want the top tier as an anniversary cake?

No, I"m pretty sure they're not going to keep the top tier. I don't think the couple has thought about that really. I think I might go ahead and do the 4 tier cake and mention to them to save the top tier...especially since I've already promised that to the bride. This is a very "special circumstance" wedding really which is why I'm chargin them so little.
