I will be doing my first topsy turvy cake next month. The bride is wanting enough cake to serve 125. What size tiers would I need to accommodate 125 servings? Thanks for your help! icon_biggrin.gif

I am curious as well to find out how to figure out servings on a topsy turvy cake as well.

I consider them pretty much the same servings as a regular cake. For instance, if I'm doing a 6/9/12 round TT cake, I would just say that serves 100 like a normal round cake in that size because even though I'm carving some of the base away, the tier is taller in certain areas, so I figure it evens out generally. If I was needing a TT to serve 125, I'd do them 6/10/14. Just my 2 cents.

Thanks for your help. There isn't much out there on how to calculate servings for a topsy turvy cake. I've always heard that there are more servings due to part of the cake being 6" high. I suppose as long as I'm in the ballpark (no more than 5 servings off) then I should be ok.
