I am having a hard time figuring out how to make this cake serve 150 http://www.pinterest.com/pin/126100858289705113/ She likes that the heights of the tiers are different so I need to stick with that and when I mentioned a back up cake so that this one didn't have to be so big she didn't seem to like the idea... Thanks!
Help getting servings right

you'd have to go about 12x12 x 9 x 6--that's approximately 160 servings where the bottom cake is really two tiers the same size--
but if one of my brides chose a silhouette then she lost control on the servings--if she wants certain amount of servings she cannot firmly dictate the silhouette--i mean she could say rounds or whatever but my brides didn't get both choices--you are right to want to use the picture as the guide and make up servings with another cake because the size i have described will not look like that cake exactly--
to get that exact look you have to take the width and the height in perspective--so your client needs to be advised she can't have both imo
because it kinda looks like a 10 x 7 x 5 to me--or even more petite perhaps--who knows but i doubt that bottom cake is a 12--
what i'm trying to say is your client is blowing it out of proportion
idk--if you get the zig zags to scale it would probably work
Ok thats what I was thinking I just wasn't sure how to make the bottom one serve enough but I will probably make four 12" and cut them like two 2 layer cakes. I am thinking I will use a cardboard separator plate between the two cakes and just frost over it so you can't see it... I am a friend of the bride so I should be at the reception to help the server if they need it.
cool--yes exactly right--plus youi get extra points for being 'on call' for her --nice touch--i hide at weddings where my cakes are served
what part of arkansas are you in? we're going to little rock & beebe tomorrow--my husband fixes machinery and i go along for the ride sometimes--it keeps us off the phone all day to each other --ha! we were in mississippi yesterday
Well you do travel around our area a lot! The husband is lucky to have you along for company :) I am just assuming from your username you are from the Memphis area? I have been wanting to take my husband there. He's not an Arkansas native and has never been!! I think that is just crazy!
i never let him forget it
yes--memphis ten oh see --- the bluff city on the big river
memphis is a great place to live and to visit--whenever you might get to come try to get a view of the bridge at night when it's all lit up--
it's quietly peacefully powerfully amazing--there's no place like home--
