I've been asked to reproduce my in-laws wedding cake for their 50th anniversary. Their cake was a 4 tier cake. Their anniversary party will have about 120-130 people. I was thinking that 14, 12, 10, 8 would work but I'm not sure. This is the first big cake I'm doing so I'm very nervous. Any help would be appreciated.
Also, unlike a wedding cake, we will be serving the top tier.
Thanks so much - Alexis
Here's the wilton chart, that i use, to determine servings. http://www.wilton.com/wedding/wedding-cakes/wedding-cake-data.cfm If you plan to cut the pieces bigger than standard, then you'll need to make add'l cake.
But an 8/10/12/14 serves 24/38/56/78 = 196.
6/8/10/12 serves 12/24/38/56 = 130.
Dupl thread .... see add'l responses at http://cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopicp-6569599.html#6569599
Hard to say for sure but I'd guess Lilly of the Valley's.
