Need help with cake size/dimensions for 120 guests

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi Everyone,

I am attempting to make a cake very similar in shape and style to this;
[http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m86r9iAkm11qbccp0o1_1280.jpg]

I'm having a hard time figuring out the best way to achieve the same look while making sure there is enough servings for 120 guests. The cake has 3 tiers, but the celebrant has requested a dummy cake for the top tier.

Can anyone suggest what cake sizes/dimensions for the bottom and middle tier that would work best for this kind of cake?

Thank you in advance for taking the time to read about my dilemma icon_smile.gif

As is, it feeds 116 (two 12" layers, four 8" layers, and two 6" layers). The celebrant can have the exact same look without the need for a dummy, if 116 servings is close enough to 120. If this isn't acceptable, you could add four cupcakes and they can pay extra for a dummy on the side that isn't necessary.

Thank you so much CWR41 for your help! Quick question, when you refer to a layer of cake, is that a 2" deep or 3" deep for each layer?

It's an average 2" deep layer.
