I have been asked to do a cake to feed 200 people. It is to be a round cake, 4 tiers and I have all the pans. I'm just confused which ones to use to feed 200? I know theres a chart here somewhere, where it says what each pan feeds. Looked at Wiltons and the closet to 4 tier feeds 260 and thats way to much
You can do the following tiers, 8" - (25), 10" - (40), 12" - (60) and a 14" - (80). These feed 205 people and you can do a little 6" cake if they want one to take on their honeymoon if you like. Otherwise these will feed the number of people you are looking for.
Thank you both, you are awesome

I don't know which Wilton chart you're looking at, but those must be all large tiers without a typical 1st anniversary-sized one on top.
Here's the industry standard chart, in case you're viewing another:
It all depends who is cutting the cake...I would error on too much...six extra pieces is not that much extra if someone has a clumsy hand and knife
IMHO Earlene's chart yields too much cake and you lose out on revenue when you use it.
The Wilton wedding chart is a great guideline.
