ASo I know there are a ton of threads about how many people cakes feed, but this is a bit different. I am making a Mario cake. It needs to feed 50 people. The fondant Luigi and Yoshi need to be able to sit on the bottom tier so I need at least a 3" difference. The top tier is Mario coming out of the tube. If I do 10", 6" and 4", there won't be enough cake. 12" 9" and 6" is too much. So what sized would you do??? Also if anyone has a Yoshi tutorial that would be great!

do a 10x7x4 -- or if that's too close an 11x8x5 for a little more wiggle room -- if you don't have that size pans  -- you can trim your cakes to that size

10"x6"=50 (if it doesn't have to be 3 tiers).

cwr41 -- i think she's using the party cake serving chart? but you're right for the wedding data chart -- too many charts

AYes there are many different charts! my cakes will be about 4" tall. And they need to be party size. I am getting ready to do my pans now. I may just have to put Luigi and Yoshi on the 2nd tier and do 10", 8", and 4".

AI use the chart by our fellow user AZCouture. I do a 5/7/9 it feeds fifty or a 52 it's a very popular combo

AAnd FYI, it's best to stick one serving size, be consistent. I don't sell party sizes to anyone, I sell according to my one chart, only.
