you can do 12, 9, and 6 inches easy and have lots of cake leftover for only 55 people..

10-7-5 gives you 67 servings
9-7-5 gives you 59 servings
10-7-4 gives you 63 servings (these last two would give you the same size difference between each tier)

Just because she only wants 50 servings doesn't mean you can give her exactly 50 servings, expecially when she is wanting a 3 tiered cake. Whatever size you end up making for her, make sure you charge her for how many servings you are making, NOT how many she wants to serve.

If she doesn't want any cake leftover, then she can just cut the pieces bigger.

And do I understand that she is planning 55 adults and 50 kids? Holy Kid Noise!! icon_surprised.gif

You can use a 12" dummy, a 10" "real" cake, and an 8" dummy; or a 10" real cake, and one 8" and one 6" dummies. Just be sure to at least charge the materials for the dummies and your time, because you will have to decorate the dummies as "real" cake. Hope this help you...

lol no, no alcohol. but believe me, the bride has 9 brother and sisters. this is mostly families. the groom came out of a family of 11 which is grown,but their kids. i just hope that the kids are under control. i went to a church wedding inwhich i did a cake and all these kids came up for cake. then i found out that the bride and grrom did not get any. wondered why the servers did not give them their cake??
