Hi everyone, thank you all for the help that you offer in this web. This is the first time I'm doing a wedding cake, I'm very excited!!!, but can you tell me what are the possible pan sizes used on this cake, how many inches high are each tier?, and finally do you think this will be enough cake for 100 people?

Thank you!!

Doesn't matter what size that cake is you need to make it the size necessary to feed 100 people. Here's earlene's serving chart http://www.earlenescakes.com/ckserchart.htm Wilton also has a serving chart that a lot of people use. Since those are square tiers it would be very easy to figure what sizes you need. The standard serving size is 1 x 2 x 4. Each tier is 4" high so you just need to figure out how many 1 x 2 slices you would get from different size pans to = 100.

I'm going to hazard a guess that they are 10x8x6 @ 4in high and according to Wiltons chart those sizes together will serve 100 on the dot. Good luck with your 1st wedding!

So then what a 6"-9"-12" ? That looks about right doesn't it?

Google and shopping comparisons are your best friends right now... Google cake pans and price compare from different sites. Too many to list and it is difficult to post sites in here. There are tons of places though. thumbs_up.gif
