I am making a cake for a Poker Run fundraiser. I thought it would be neat to do a poker themed cake. I would like to do stacked or tiers instead of sheet cakes...so many more options. How many tiers? What size pans should I use? Any design ideas would be greatly appreciated as well! Thank you!

I would do tiered 10 inch rounds and torte them. Decorate as a stack of poker chips!

There are many cakes in the gallery, stacked and sheet cakes. Although, LOL, I am partial to my own texas hold 'em table in my gallery! Good luck and have fun!

Thank you for the replies! I guess what I am really struggling with is the size. It needs to serve 200 people. This will be my first stacked cake.

Ok...I think I have my tier sizes figured out. I used the cake calculator that someone posted on CC in another post. According to the calculator a 10", 12", 14", and 16" rounds will serve approximately 208 people. That is using 2" cake pans. Also, I went on Sugarart.com and they have a fondant chart and according to that I would need approx. 18 lbs of fondant. Does this sound right to everyone??? I am needing to pick everything up Sunday to start on the decorations....please help!!
