Help ! I have stressed out for so long and now I do not have anytime to fumble with this anymore. I am making my friends wedding cake this Sunday! I have looked at so many cutting charts and how many servings per cake and I am so confused now. Can someone please helptelserl me what size pans I should be using. Its a four tier and the top tier will be reserved for the anniversary and she said to make it for 100 people. Here is a picture of the cake she has in mind, help please xoxoxox
geez I cant do anything right ! I am trying to down load a picture for reference from the pink cake box.
the cake is four tier
top is square
base is round
whatsize cakes should I make to serve 100 help! xoxo
You should be using the sizes from the wilton chart. Without seeing the actual cake you want to make and assuming the tiers are going to be 4" high, 12rd-8sq-6rd-4sq serves 110 total, 102 without the top tier. (you need the weird sizing to make the square fit on the round)
You can't get a picture into the forums anymore for some reason. You could always paste a link to the site on the internet if you want to.
It's not you. It's just not working like before.
KoryAK is right... these sizes would work.
12rd-8sq-6rd-4sq serves 110 total, 102 without the top tier.
When I add 12" round = 56
8" square = 32
6" round = 12
I get a total of 100
+ 4" square = 8
= 108 total including the top tier.
(using the Wilton wedding chart.)
here is a link to the cake sorry I cant get it posted... do you all still agree?
Hey! I think we had the sizes pretty good! The only change is I think the second tier is a 7", not a 6".
do you mean the top tier is a 7? I have a 6 do you think it will matter alot?
Round (base) 12 inches.
Square 8 inches.
Round (on top of square, #3 from bottom) 7 inches.
Square (top tier) 4 inches.
That's what they mean. They had the 6" round one inch too small. I just drew it in Illustrator, to size, and that's how they would go. Top tier is a small 4".
Yes, the 6" will look fine and fit with the square.
thank you so much xoxoxo
