What about non-wedding tiered cakes? If that was a birthday cake? In May I made a 3 tiered cake for my daughter because I wanted to practice and covered it in fondant. It was a star shape pan and 8" & 6" rounds. Someone asked me how much something like that would cost, I pointed out that it was fondant, and the decorations on it too, I said for sure over a hundred. I'm sure they thought it was a lot.
I've noticed that on the Wilton cake dec books, they give you the break down for how many party servings, and how many wedding servings. ei. an 8" round gives you 20 party serv. or 24 wedding serv. I know I spent my time on my daughters, so even if it's non-wedding cake a lot of cakes can take alot of work- right ladies? just look at all the cakes here at CC.
You can call it a birthday cake, a celebration cake, a wedding cake, a kiss-my-butt-at-8th-and-main cake .... makes no difference to me. Same cake, same work, same price.
As far as serving size, I use the wilton wedding chart. If they want to cut the cake bigger they can. The cake is still the same price. If that means they need to order a bigger cake, then they have to order a bigger cake. KFC tells me that 2 pieces of chicken is a serving. If my clan eats 4 pcs, I dont' get the bucket for 1/2 price because it feeds half the number of people.
