Hi all,

I always agonize over this question because I never write down what I did before...

I need a two tiered cake to serve 75...will 14 and 10 do it? I know I want them stacked with a big enough edge on the bottom layer for water and fish (I am doing a fishing boat theme...thanks to all the great ideas here!)

Thanks for any tips...

Jen

You didn't say what shape cakes, so I'm going to assume round. Here's round cake serving guide for you to save:

4  -- 6
5  -- 10
6  -- 12
7  -- 16
8--  24
9--  30
10--  38
11--  45
12--  55
13--  65
14--  75
15--  85
16--  100
18--  125
20--  150

***1"x2"x4" servings***

The 14" would be enough by itself! If you are wanting plenty of room, but close to the number of servings, I would go with 12 and 8 instead- that would be 79 servings.

I think that would be plenty of cake!! Earlene's chart says it serves 95...I think you're good!

you could probably get away with a 13-9, if you don't want leftovers...

HTH!

What serving chart do you use?

ALWAYS use the Wilton wedding chart. Back away from all other charts -- others just make you give away free cake.

Thank you for all of your replies!

I always feel like 1x2 peices are too small so I try to use a chart that says bigger. I will actually be at this party so I will be able to get a good idea!

Thanks again,
Jen

I'm the same way....when I make cake, people eat it...and a LOT of it! Story will probably change if/when I do this for a living! LOL! But until then, I use Earlene's chart as a jumping off point....into a large vat of frosting! icon_razz.gif

8 cubic inches of cake is too small? icon_eek.gificon_confused.gif
