This took a bit of math.
Circumference of each cake divided by .31 which is the inch measurement of 8mm so the final figure is the number of pearls for each layer.
8" = 25.12"/ .31= 81.0
10 " =31.4 / .31=101.2
12 "=37.68 /.31=121.5
Total 303.7 plus extras for those that disappear understuff.
350 should do it with extras just in case.
