Hey fellow cake lovers,

What would the dimensions (cake board/drum sizes) be for a round cupcake tower that has to hold 200 cupcakes with a 6" round cake on top?

Thanks,

On my cupcake stand I have a sheet of how many fit on each tier.
goes by size tier-cupcakes
8-7
10-8
12-15
14-17
16-25
18-32
20-35
22-53
using all of these will give you around 190-195 cupcakes total and this is with a center dowel of 1 1/2 inches in diameter. This may vary some depending on how many you like to squeeze on the tier or how big your cupcakes are.
