what size cakes should i use for a 2 tier cake to serve 45?
would a 13"and a 10" be way too much cake (we do serve
big slices.)
do you think a 10"and 8" would be enough?

8 and 10 is good if you need larger slices

And 8 and a 10 would be 55 wedding servings.. more than enough. icon_smile.gif

For rounds, I use a 6" ( 12) and a 10" ( 32) = 44 servings.

an 8" and a10" serve exactly 45 in my book. 8" serves 15 and 10" serves 30. there are several cutting guides uploded to the sketches and instructions part of the gallery which show you the exact serves and cutting format that particular person uses which could be quite helpfull for you. i have given you my desert proportion sizes too just so you know. I rarely do coffee portion unless specifically asked as i love my cake and wouldn't be impressed by a 1" by 1" piece of anything personally icon_biggrin.gif in my book the bigger the piece the better!

I agree with adatay!!!! Let them eat cake, and more than a teeny slice! I would do a 12", 8" and a tiny 4" on top for a beautiful look. I guess since most of us make such large-scale cakes, an 8" looks like a giant cupcake to me! I would certainly rather have too much than not enough. Just my opinion...hope it helps!
I'm doing an anniversary party in a couple of weeks for 70 people, and am making what I suggested to you above as the anniversary cake, plus two chocolate 8" birthday cakes for relatives of the anniversary couple.

thanks for the suggestions!
i agree- i like to cut nice big slices of cake!
i figure if i am going to do all the work making the cake, i like the
guests to really get to eat it!

thanks again!
