I would stick to 3 tiers, serving 100. Can't always get the exact number needed. Or two tier 8 and 10, to serve 82. Or use dummies, if you're up for it.

But if you are planning to hand stencil that damask print as well, I would charge a freaking buttload for that cake!

6" two-layer top (serves 1icon_cool.gif
8" single layer 2nd tier (serves 16)
10" two-layer 3rd tier (serves 50)

Optional:
12" single layer bottom tier (serves 36)

1) total servings: 18+16+50 = 84
2) total servings: 16+50+36 = 100 (not counting top tier)

Thanks! I am always confused when it comes to servings.. I have so many charts and Im never sure which is the most realistic.
