Here is a very hand chart to use when working out the size of wedding cake or celebration cake you will need. This is based on the following serving sizes –
Sponge cake 2″ x 1″ x 3″
Fruit cake 1″ x 1″ x 3″
Some cake designs do offer deeper slices (up to 4 or 5″).
In using this chart you will need to know how many guests you are serving and which combination of cake flavours you would like.
For large tiered cakes I strongly recommend you have a fruit cake or a fake cake as the bottom tier, as this provides a good foundation to hold up the upper tiers.
|Size||Round Sponge||Round Fruit||Square Sponge||Square Fruit|
Example Cake combinations and the number of guests you could serve
Do bear in mind though that I can be creative with your tier sizes in order to design the cake of your dreams.
Always dreamt of a large cake but don’t need hundreds of portions of cake? I can use dummy or faux tiers to make your cake look larger.
Would love a simple, elegant, three tiered cake but you have 500 guests to feed? I can make additional cutting cake for your caterers which will not be on display but can be cut and served to your guests.
