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

*IMPORTANT- Please Read
If your initial calculation for the number of yards required is an exact number (there was nothing to round up to), we recommend purchasing an extra yard to account for any slight inaccuracies in the cutting of the ribbon or the making of the cake.
