I'm sure this has been discussed to death, but I'm not sure that I'm reading the Wilton charts correctly. Anyways, what size rounds would I need to make for a 2 tiered cake to yield 100 servings?

TIA!

ETA: What about if I want to make a 3 tiered cake?

A 10 & a 12 will serve 94. That's about as close as your going to get with only 2 tiers. A 10 & a 14 will serve 116. AN 8 & a 14 will serve 102, but that's a pretty big size difference between the two tiers...

For a 3 tier, a 6, 9, & 12 serves 100 perfectly.

Make sure you're looking at the wedding servings on the Wilton site. What part is confusing?

NancyB,
Check out Earlene's Cakes http://www.earlenescakes.com/ckserchart.htm . She has a great chart for determining serving sizes. She created it when she discovered that the Wilton chart did not equal the serving sizes she was actually getting per cake.
