i am wondering if it is possible to put a 10 inch round cake over a 9x13 inch square cake?? I know that by math the measures shouldnt agree but anyone has tried?? it can be done? if so how???

I want to do this bc i have to make a cake for 200 ppl, the theme is circus, so i was thinking two 9x13 square, in top of each one a 10 inch round and in top of one of those a 6 inch round. According to wilton cutting chart it will be 202 slices, am I right?? what do you think?

Thanks!! A Lot!!

Well, you could, but you'll end up with an extra inch worth of overhang on the 10" rounds. So a half inch on each side. If you're willing to construct a cake like that, I guess there's no reason that you couldn't, but I think it would look silly.

why not just three 14" round 2-layer tiers? that would be 234 servings (some can have seconds)

and then you could do a:

3-ring circus theme

each cake a different ring -- with a different act going on.

clowns in one
elephants or tigers in another
human cannonball in the last

or any combination of circus acts you like

You could do the two 9x13, stick them together so you had 18x13, put the 10" rounds on top and decorate them to look like a circus tent, with the 6" round on top to look like the smaller part on top of some tents. That would give you space on the sides to do more circus decorations. It would be a big heavy cake though...might need a piece of plywood for a bottom board just to hold it all.
