Help!!!! I have no clue what size pans to use. I have a customer who would like a three tiered cake that is quite elaborate, but I know I can do it. However, I am so confused on what size pans to use. She only needs it to feed 30 people! How can I do that? I am so confused. I don't want it to be so small it looks silly but at the same time I don't want it to be so large it is silly. Please help!

Here is a link to a serving size of cake. It will definitely be more than 30 servings no matter which way you go, unless you do dummy cakes. http://www.earlenescakes.com/ckserchart.htm

The smallest round 3-tier cake you can do is a 4-6-8 which serves 39, not including the top tier (which serves 6).
