I have a friend that would like me to make her a 3 tiered cake. Either round bottom, square middle and round top or square bottom, round middle and square top?
Question one: Is this possible? How difficult for a beginner?
Question two: How hard is it to fondant a square cake?
Question three: Which sizes should I use. I do not own any square pans but I do have a 10 inch round and a 6 inch round.
Thanks!

And no servings does not dictate the pan sizes when working with mixed shapes. To look right, going by servings alone does not work. It's about math and how the tiers fit within the dimensions.
