Wedding cake servings

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
OKAY! I know I can count on my friends to answer this question. When you are giving servings for wedding cakes are you using Earlenes chart or Wilton's? I'm making a 3 tiered stacked cake, 6,8,10". If I go by one chart I get 53 the other chart gives me 84. That's a huge difference! The other ? Earlene's chart doesn't give the size of the slice. Does anyone know? Thanks so much!

Cake slices are usually less generous than other servings, thus your yield should be greater.

Personally, I go with the 4x2x 1 3/8 inch. I always have them order more than they think due to someone slicing larger pcs than that, or for those who want to try more than one piece because I try to talk the bride into more interesting flavors than chocolate and white!

I, for one, really hate a skimpy pc of wedding cake when I attend someone's wedding. That's the part I look forward to the most! icon_smile.gif

I like to serve....larger pieces to because i feel that It something people look forward to.....
Especially after i asked my daugther what she wanted for her birthday and she said ....Oh can you make me a cake ..... like there was any doubt...go with what you comfortable and then make your own chart.....
