I have a request to make this cake of mine but increase to serve 88. Its the 2 tiered communion cake in my photos - sorry I can figure out how to make to smaller to add as an attachment.
This original design is an 8" and 6". I'm thinking of doing the same design, but adding a tier, and bumping them up.... so 12", 10" and 8".
Do you think this would work out? I keep feeling like the top tier should be a 6", but I'm nervous enough about 3 tiers. (my first 3 tiered cake!).
What do you think?

You could do an 8" for the top. I personally like a 6" for the top though. If you want to keep it that way, you could do a 6/9/12 to serve 100. It's a little more than you need, but that may be about the only way to do it and keep the top a 6.

I agree with 6/9/12 - it would look right, and a few extra servings would probably be ok

That was my original plan, but using the wilton serving guide for party slices.... I only get 76 serv. w/ 6/9/12, which is why I thought of 8/10/12.
I'm puzzled by servings guides.... what is accurate???

I only use wedding serving chart #s. I think it is crazy to cut a cake bigger for other occasions. 1X2X4 is plenty big for any occasion.
