I'm making a cake this weekend. It is serving between 50-60 ppl. It will be a 3-tiered square cake. I looked on the Wilton website and came up with this.......10" (50), 8" (32), 6" (1icon_cool.gif cakes will be torted and filled. Why does that not look big enough???? Maybe I should do 12" (72), 10" (50), 8" (32)....The size of the pans doesnt look like you could get that # of servings.


I'd like to have extra cake.

Take a piece of wood or styro and cut it into the 1x2x4 size so you can see what a serving looks like.
You will have more than eough servings w/the 10, 8, 6icon_smile.gif - more than 90 servings. It costs you to make, ice etc so don't loose money on this by giving them more.

6/8/10 square is nearly twice as much cake as you need. You'll be fine.

Probably because you're envisioning the pie-shaped-big-'ole-wedge piece of cake that most people chow down on. leahs is right .... you'll have WAY more cake than you need.

Here's how to cut a cake to achieve the wilton servings: http://cateritsimple.com/_wsn/page10.html You use the same technique on square cakes.

You are envisioning 2-layer cakes right?

Yes two layer cakes cut in half and filling. Like I said, it just seemed small. I'm probably just envisioning MASSIVE hunks of cakes being passed around.
