Okay Iâm really not good at this so a little bit of assistance is needed and greatly appreciated. I have a bride that is inviting 130 and expecting 120 to show for the reception. She wants to the cake to be square and feed 120 â 125 people including the top tier. I only have 10â, 8â and 6â square pans. Which if using these the cake would serve 100. What size combinations of pans would make between 120 â 125 servings and what pans would I need to purchase.
Thanks for your help once again.
A 6/9/12 will give you 122 servings. It's easy to compute square cake servings.
Length of one side X half the length of the other side = a 1" by 2" slice which is the industry standard.
a 6" square pan yields 18 servings. 6 X 3 = 18.
Or you can just look at the Wilton chart. It's in the back of every one of their wedding cake books.
well, if she wants them stacked, you could do 12, 8, 6 which would give you 122 servings.
If she wants the appearance of a larger cake, you could stack the 6, 8, 10 and then put a 6 on the table on both sides of the large tiered for 132 servings. This is what I will be doing for my brother's wedding in July except on a grander scale (8, 10, 12 stacked with 2- 10" side cakes).
