I'm making a baby shower cake for 50, and I'm trying to decide what size tiers to use. Right now I'm thinking probably a 9" and 12" round, but is there a better arrangement? Is there a way to make it 3 tiers that still looks right?

A 9 and 12 in round will give you 88 1x2x4 servings.

A 6 and 10 in round will give you 50 1x2x4 servings and looks very nice.

The chart I have distinguishes between party servings and wedding servings. I was going by party servings, but I don't know how big those are meant to be. Do you think the wedding serving size is a better guide?

6 & 10 are my favorite 2 tiered combo. I have a few in my gallery. My last wedding cake I did was a 6 &10.
