Hiatus... And a fun little game

Heading on vacation for 7 whole days -- sooooo excited!! So no cakes this or next weekend! I haven't had two weekends off since January!! So, for all you blog followers, a little game to keep you occupied during my hiatus...

A Cake Statistic Game --
So, the biggest cake I've done so far was the black and white wedding cake this June:

Here's the game - post a comment with your guesses for the stats below, the closest in each category wins a delicious sampling of cake truffles!! (Non-Charlotte folks, don't be shy - not sure how the truffles will travel by mail, but I'm willing to give it a try!) Post by next Tues, July 27th.

What you need to know - this cake served 215. It measured 20 inches tall. And weighed over 35 lbs (not including the stand). Happy Guessing:
  1. How many large eggs were used?
  2. How many sticks of butter (FYI, 1 stick = 1/2 cup)?
  3. How many lbs of powdered sugar to make the frosting?
