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. icon_smile.gif

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.

Thanks for the help with the layers. I've attached a photo of what I am trying to make. I can figure most of it out except the small flowers that seem to stick out of the cake? I have no idea what they are or how to make them.
Does anyone have any suggestions?

thanks again- alexis

Hard to say for sure but I'd guess Lilly of the Valley's.
