A bride doesn't haven't alot of money to spend on her wedding make so I offered to make her a 2 tier wedding cake and a sheet cake. There will be about 115 people to be served. The top tier will not to cut and kept by the bride so I only need to calculate the sencond tier and the sheet cake. Can someone tell me what combination 2 tier wedding cake I should make? What size sheet cake shall I make?

a 6" and a 10" would give you 40 servings (30 without the 6"), so you'd need another 85 servings in sheetcake form........a double layered 11x15 is 75 servings or a double layered 12"x18" is 108 servings. Depends if they want more cake than they need or less! If they served the top tier it would come out perfectlly with the 11x15x4

Most members charge the same for "by the serving" cake whether it's made into a cake tier or a sheet cake.

Also, indydebi points out that making sheetcakes in addition to the wedding cake actually creates "more" work for her:
