Will a 2 layered 10 inch round feed 17 people?

post #1 of 8

Each layer is about 2 inches, would this be enough to feed 17 people, or should I go to a 12 or 14 inch round?

One layer will be vanilla and one layer will be chocolate.

Thanks for the help!

A 10-inch round 2 layer cake will serve 30 - 38 people, depending on how the cake is cut. An 8 inch round will serve 18-24 people.

There are times when I think I can help. Other times I think, given an already shallow gene pool, I am doing more for humanity by just letting go...

I do 10" cakes for the office birthdays each month and there are 23-25 employees there. We always have a few slices left after everyone in served. icon_smile.gif There is more than enough for 17 people!

You can get 12 nice size slices from an 8" two layer cake, so a 10" will certainly be enough for 17 people.

awesome, I thought it would be enough, but I wanted to make sure. Thank you so much!

I use the Wilton party serving charts for 12 square inches of cake per serving vs. the wedding servings which yield 8 square inch servings.

So, yes, a 10" will serve AT LEAST 28 people.
