It is for a wedding, and I do charge for the top tier. The closest I can figure is by using a 10,8, and 6" squares, but that is going to be 100 servings. Any other ideas?

They want a 3-tier cake (that serves 100) but only need 75 serves.....

THEY PAY FOR 100 SERVES !!!!! or settle for a 2tier cake!!

Some people will suggest a dummy tier but I reckon it takes the same amount of decorating as a cake (and here the cost of the dummy is about the same as the ingredients for a cake!) so bascially cost is the same!

you say you charge for the top tier, but is that included in the servings?

10, 8, 6 round is 74.
if they want square, they suck up the extra cost. (8, 6, 4 not enough servings, plus, a very small looking cake!)

Bingo.

This isn't Taco Bell where you can order exactly 75 tacos. If they only want 75 servings AND a 3 tier cake, they can go with the round, or they can pay for 100 servings in a 3-tier square cake.

That's just how it is.

Thanks for the replies...they said they would love to have the leftover cake and went with 100 servings. It also gave me a reason to buy the square pans I've been wanting forever!
