Hi all....I am attempting my 1st 3 tiered cake for my daughters 3rd b-day party this weekend. I usually do a 1/2 sheet cake for her parties but wanted to try something different.
I was planning on doing 8, 10, & 12 tiers. My question is this...according to the round cake chart I found on CC that should feed 63 people. I am having 55. Is that cutting it too close? Does anyone know how accurate that chart is. It says cutting 2x2 pieces that 12' will serve 28, the 10' will serve 21, and the 8' will serve 14.

Thanks is advance your help. This site has been invaluable to me. It is so wonderful that you all are so willing to help us amateurs out!!! icon_smile.gif

are you planning on having your cakes be 4" high?? If so, 2x2x4 is WAY TOO BIG.

The chart I use says a 4" high cake, 8, 10, and 12 serves 100. The Wilton chart says 118.

Thank you that you mention that...those would be huge pieces. Each cake will be two layers so I guess I will have more than I am wondering if I should do an 12,9,6 instead...hmmm.
