Hi! I’m new to baking and I have a client who wants a 1 tier cake that serves about 40 people for a birthday party. All of the charts I’ve seen are different or are less than 40 or more. Can someone help? I was thinking maybe a 3-4 layer 10 inch or 12. Thank you!

Adding a 3rd layer is not going to add any more servings you’ll just have taller ones You might have to offer a cake that gives more or a bit less than wanted Just be sure you charge for every serving given I don’t remember how many servings a 12”x4” round yields but t think it will be enough

Tell you client it is not possible to make a single, one tier cake to serve 40 people.  It would be far better to make two cakes, which would offer the opportunity for two different flavors, if desired.  Or....make a large sheet cake.
