so i typically do specialty cakes and tiered cakes. i have not done a cake for an even serving 150. i am very excited about this but what would be the best sizes to use. she origianlly thought of doing a huge sheet cake, but i dont really do full sheet cakes , as i dont have a big enough oven. plus they seem kinda boring to me. does anyone have any suggestions as to what size cakes i should use for 150 people. thank you in advance

According to Wilton serving size of ~ 1x2" you could do the following options:

Square tier =
166
- 14" ( 98 )
- 10" ( 50 )
- 8" ( 18 )

Round tiers = 158
- 14" ( 78 )
- 12" ( 56 )
- 8" ( 24 )

Round tier = 152
- 14" ( 78 )
- 10" ( 38 )
- 8" ( 24 )
- 6" ( 12 )

Combo tier = 160
- 14" square ( 98 )
- 10" round ( 50 )
- 6" round ( 12 )

Sorry edited to fix combo tier calculations and also space out so the smiley.

thank you so much for the info, how come on some of your tier listing, the 8" only have 10 servings? vs the 24?

The square 8" has different serving then the 8" round. On the last listing of the combo tier I meant to put a 6" instead of the 8".

I think the smiley faces where messing with the numbers I inputted, I fixed everything.
