Hi Baking Buddies ~  I need to make a 3 tier cake for about 65 people.  What size tiers would I need for this endeavor?  I was thinking a 12" + 9" + 6".  Do you think that will suffice?  I also considered a 14" + 10" + 6 but wasn't sure if I needed to go that big on the bottom tier.  The tiers will be about 3-4" high. Any help you can send my way would be much appreciated.  Thank you.

ADo you have a chart? They're in several places on the internet. Google cake serving chart, save it to your desktop, and you'll have it for immediate future reference. The sizes you have listed are more than you need.

This is the standard serving chart that I use for 100 people and 60 people

 

A 6"-9"-12" round cakes serve 100 people

A  5"-7"-9" round cakes serve 60 people

 

Hope this helps. :)

AA lot of us here use the wilton chart. If your cakes are 4 inches high then the serves will be quite sufficient.
