I have been asked to do a tiered cake. The customer wants to alternate shapes....starting with square on the bottom, then round, etc. What sizes do I use for a cake to feed 350???? HELP

thats the wilton charts, most people/ caterers use them as standard.
the thing to watch out for will be that the squares dont over hang the rounds, do some measuring, and stack the pans to double check!
its going to be a big cake!

you can play with the numbers/sizes with my cake calculator (uses the Wilton pan data):
