Then she'd be getting extra 20 servings. Is there maybe a 6" 8" 10" that'll work? I think that 12' will be too much cake. If it was five or so slices over, okay. But 20 is pushing it. Sorry, but this is my first big order and I don't want to give cake away, but I'd like to provide them with a chart for cutting and get eighty or so out of it.(going by way of three tier) Thanks again!

Thanks!

I'd suggest a 6" x 9" x 12" for 100 servings.

Ops!  Came back to screen and message hadn't sent (or so it said).  I only suggested the 9" because it would be fewer servings than the 10" you said you were going to use.  You can't always reach the exact serving goal... they need to pay for actual servings or order a smaller cake that doesn't meet their goal.

Give servings away???? You charge for the cake they get, not for the number of servings asked for. But you offer a cake as close to the number of servings they need. Some would rather err over and some err under, depends on how they came up with the number they gave you.
