Have you tried using this Wilton chart? Just figure out how many servings and add up the tier sizes using the chart.

For the 3 tier I like a 6, 9, 12

For the 2 tier it's a little hard to get a good visual for 100 servings because the top tier would be a little large. 9, 12 gives you 88, is that close enough?

thank you soooo much!!!! what were the sizes for the 2 tier that you said might look odd because i have to make a mickey head for the top so it may work out perfect!! i am def book-marking that! every chart that i have found was soooo different.... your the best!

Well a 10,12 would give you 94 servings and a 10,14 would give you 116.

I think as long as you're putting a topper on the 10" it would work fine visually as a top tier.

You're very welcome! Good luck!

14" and 8" = 102. This might work nicely if the 8" needs room for Mickey ears. (you could probably use a 6" or 7" if the ears are also cake to help make up the extra servings needed.)
