The pic is a quick paint drawing of what im doing..the top standing one is a dummy cake so it will stand..So the bottom two layers will be doube thickness to give it a more drum look (so 2 2 layer cakes seperated by cardboard for stability all covered in fondant together).. it needs to feed about 100 people.. What sizes do you guys think i should do?? a 8" and 12"??? 8" and 10"?

Neither of those options serves 100.

it would technically be 2 double layer 8 in cakes and 2 double layer 10/12 in cakes, so 4 cakes fondanted to be 2 cakes.. You dont think that would serve 100 people??

It would serve exactly 100 if you made the 10" cake 8" tall like a tom-tom and the 8" cake 4" tall like a snare drum.
