Lexi55033 --- Just one more question about the amazing charts you just posted! Do those charts follow the Wilton or Earlene or anyone else? Or are they something you just made up because they are a good size?

Thank you so much!!!

HTH!

Those are ones that I just made up, but basically follow IndyDebi's cutting guide and standard wedding cake sizes. For the party cake sizes I just made 2 sizes because some people like smaller pieces and some like bigger, so I figured I'd cover both. That way, you can tell people that a 10" round feeds X-X people and give them a range based on how big they want the pieces following the charts. Make sense?

I'll post the charts to the template section later this afternoon. I have to leave in about 5 minutes.

Glad you like it!

I just uploaded the charts to the Templates Gallery. Feel free to use them however you see fit. I created them about a month ago when I had a few spare minutes. In the future, I'd like to create a more graphically appealing flyer with them on, but for now this works.

Thanks for sharing! It's so much easier to show someone, rather than describing how to cute a round cake the way Indydebi suggest.

Thanks for answering my question about which serving chart your charts follow!

OK, I just don't understand these wedding cake serving guides. I know I am short-changing myself as the baker but I don't go by Wilton's TINY standard piece. If a box cake mix says it makes 12 servings and it fits perfectly in an 8" two layer why would Wilton say an 8" layer cake serves SO many more than that? I use the standard of an 8" serves 15, 10" serves 30, 12" serves 45, 14" serves 60 and 16" serves 90 for my cakes (double layer). People usually do have some left over and they LOVE that. If it is a wedding cake I tell the bride that my cake will serve all the people at her wedding if they tell the cake cutters to cut "big party size pieces". I personally hate going to weddings and getting a tiny little bite size piece of cake.

But I think I will use the tip someone gave of printing out a cake cutting guide and leaving it on the cake table for the cutters to follow. Thanks for the idea!

My standard 2 layer 8 in round recipe makes exactly 24 cupcakes. That's how come I know that my 8 in round has 24 servings. Now since I like tall tiers, I use slightly more batter in my tiered cakes vs cupcakes so I know those suckers have more than the standard serving amounts of cake in them.

Ateco makes a great cake marker, only $6.00 and they come in different sizes.

 

I use it often and love this thing!

My standard batter for an 8" double layer cake (or a standard box cake mix for that matter) makes 16-18 cupcakes for me (I do use a larger size liner, not the 'standard' cupcake liners). So that tells me I an pretty spot on for telling my customers my 8" 2 layer round cake will serve at least 15 (plus a little left over). That's a great way to figure this out. Thanks!
