You should be using the sizes from the wilton chart. Without seeing the actual cake you want to make and assuming the tiers are going to be 4" high, 12rd-8sq-6rd-4sq serves 110 total, 102 without the top tier. (you need the weird sizing to make the square fit on the round)

You can't get a picture into the forums anymore for some reason. You could always paste a link to the site on the internet if you want to.

It's not you. It's just not working like before.

KoryAK is right... these sizes would work.

When I add 12" round = 56
8" square = 32
6" round = 12
I get a total of 100
+ 4" square = 8
= 108 total including the top tier.

(using the Wilton wedding chart.)

Hey! I think we had the sizes pretty good! The only change is I think the second tier is a 7", not a 6".

do you mean the top tier is a 7? I have a 6 do you think it will matter alot?

Round (base) 12 inches.

Square 8 inches.

Round (on top of square, #3 from bottom) 7 inches.

Square (top tier) 4 inches.

That's what they mean. They had the 6" round one inch too small. I just drew it in Illustrator, to size, and that's how they would go. Top tier is a small 4".

Yes, the 6" will look fine and fit with the square.
