If someone could measure all the way around a few cake pans for me that would be great. I am making my first wedding cake next weekend and I dont have all the sizes. They are on order but wont be here until next week. They gave me the ribbon to go around each tier but I am worried its not enough. I need to know the circumference of a 12, 10, 8, & 6 inch pan. Thank you so much for helping me.

Use this chart (or multiply your diameter by Pi to get the circumference).

Make sure you have enough ribbon for a slight overlap to join the ends together with royal icing or whatever you are using, and for the cake drum if you are using it on there.

Pi is equal to 3.14.
For circumference multiply diameter x 3.14.
For a rough amout just triple the diameter and add a bit.
