The bride (daughter of a friend) wants a wedding cake that will only serve 50 (with the top tier saved for 1st anniversary) She also wants icing flowers draped down the cake. HOW do I give her height and volume with these icing flowers on such a small cake?
All suggestions and ideas welcome and appreciated! birthday.gif

Use hearts or oval cakes....they yield less servings than rounds.

Barely less. Squares are the onyl really different chart. Start with a 4" cake on top. A 4-6-8 x 4" tall = 45 servings including the top. So that gives you a place to start. Also a 6-8-10 x 3" is 59 total, 49 without the top.
