I'm going to be making my first wedding cake for my niece in Oct. It will also need to feed 200 people. I've decided to do five tiers round 14/12/10/8/6. According to the Wilton wedding chart, this should feed 208. I used this handy cake calculator that cc'r metria provided in her signature line...thanks metria icon_smile.gif

Use Wilton's not Earlene's. 6-9-12-15" serves 190 including the top tier or 6-8-10-12-14" serves 211, 197 without the top tier.

The Wilton wedding cake chart is the industry standard for 8 cu. in. servings (1" x 2" x 4")... I'd stick with that.
