I need to make a cake that will serve 40-45. Will a 10" and 7" serve that many. The charts that I've looked at seem to think it will, but I'm not sure. Each tier is 4" tall. What do you think?

As I rememver a 10x4 round serves 35=39 and a 7 should give you another 10=14,
That's with servings of 1x2x4. It will be close because you don't know how it iwll be cut.

I get about 45 party servings, thats inbetween earlenes(40), and wiltons wedding serv(5icon_cool.gif. So, you would be 40'ish in my eyes. It does depend on size, of course. If there is something besides cake and you are instructing in cutting , then you'll be OK. IF not, might be close. I always go over a bit anyways, but always have leftovers. I dont like to cut it close...pardon the pun...LOL
Not everybody eats cake as well.
