can anyone help me real quick. i want to make this cake http://www.marthastewartweddings.com/article/tear-drop-wedding-cake-how-to?backto=true&backtourl=/photogallery/50-great-cakes#slide_17
but only for 150 people. I have made alot of cakes but none w/square pans, sooo i dont have any square pans. the only ones i can find at the stores are a set of 8,12,16... i feel like these may be too large for 150 people. also for the look? can anyone tell me what sizes you think this cake may be????
THANKS!

Counting the top tier 12", 10", and 8" will feed 154 (122 without the top tier), 14", 10", and 6" will feed 166 (148 without the top tier). HTH

If you do the 12, 10, and 8 (154 servings altogether) to serve all the guests you could make a 4 inch for the bride and groom. An 8 inch alone will serve 32, unless they plan on sharing it with 30 other people on their anniversary the 4 inch should suffice.

When you order these pans be sure to get magic line or fat daddio's. Good luck on your cake. I cannot wait to see the picture icon_biggrin.gif
