CALCULATING CAKE BANDING

ROUND CAKES
Formula:  Circumference = 3.14 x Diameter
EXAMPLE:
TIER       DIAMETER       MULTIPLY BY             AMOUNT OF RIBBON NEEDED (INCHES)
TIER 1     6 INCH TIER   X        3.14              =
18.84 - ROUND UP TO 19 INCHES
TIER 2    10 INCH TIER   X       3.14              =       31.40 - ROUND UP TO 32 INCHES
TIER 3    14 INCH TIER   X       3.14              =       43.96 - ROUND UP TO 44 INCHES

Now add the amount of ribbon needed for all tiers together
19 + 32 + 44 = 95 INCHES

To determine the number of yards needed for the cake in the above example, we now divide the number of inches by 36 and round up:
95 divided by 36 =  2.64 yards of ribbon - Round up to 3 yards

SQUARE CAKES
Formula:  Perimeter = 2 x Length + 2 x Width
EXAMPLE:
TIER      LENGTH X 2      PLUS    WIDTH X 2     =  AMOUNT OF RIBBON NEEDED (INCHES)
TIER 1    6 IN X 2 = 12        +        6 IN X 2 = 12   =              24 INCHES
TIER 2   10 IN X 2 = 20        +      10 IN X 2 = 20  =              40 INCHES
TIER 3   14 IN X 2 = 28        +      14 IN X 2 = 28  =              56 INCHES

Now add the amount of ribbon needed for all tiers together
24 + 40 + 56 = 120 INCHES

To determine the number of yards needed for the cake in the above example, we now divide the number of inches by 36 and round up:
120 divided by 36 = 3.33 yards of ribbon - Round up to 4 yards
