I’ve made a cake for 100 people before (amateur baker here), and I made a three tier with 6, 8, and 10 and had plenty. Since you’re not worried about having extra, go for 8, 10, and 12 to be safe!

Just a warning that my Wilton pans have warped over time. I replaced them with pans from Fat Daddio and I’m much happier with them. But if you only need them for a few times, they’ll work fine. 🙂

We have a 4 tier. 6, 8, 10, 12. Along with 2 kitchen cakes. We have 300 people. If you are worried about 8 being too big for the top, you can always still do 3 tiers 6, 8, 10 and have kitchen cakes or sheet cakes as well.

we had 3 tiers and they were 8, 10 and 12. The cake had 75 slices, but we had 175 guests

@Mrs.LemonDrop:  I think an 8 would be perfectly fine. Or you could have fun with it and do a 6 or 8 on top, then a double stacked 10 on the bottom (would amount to 8 layers with a cake board in between, so it would be cut in half before serving).

@Mrs.LemonDrop:  We are feeding 90-120. Our cake is 6″ sqaure 10″ circle 12″ square. I know the sizing sounds weird, but when you see it in person- it looks cool!! But that feeds 133 I guess. (We’re DIY our recpetion, everything but the cake so we didn’t mind a little left over)
