Hi all,

I'm new to cake decorating and will be making my first cake for my daughter's 1st bday party this Saturday. I have been practicing buttercream and cake recipes, how to frost a smooth cake, etc. I am planning on making a 10, 8, 6 in tiered cake, and a seperate smash cake for my little girl. Will this be enough to serve to approx that many people? I'm going to start baking and freezing so I just want to make sure this is enough. Thanks! icon_smile.gif

10" usually feeds about 30-40 people. 8" about 20, you should probably start with a 12" whish should feed about 60 people

She wants a tiered cake, not one single cake.
