I was wondering if anyone could tell me what to tell a client how many servings a 6in double, an 8in double and a 10in double cake would serve for a young girls birthday party. They would all be 4 inches high and round with buttercream filling. Would they cut them the same as a wedding cake? Thanks for any help.

Ok, so according to wilton, a 6in an 8in and a 10in double layer round three tier cake cut into 2 x 1 1/2 x 4in cake slice would feed 51 people .. I guessed that the 6in round could be cut into 6 wedges since that is what they recommend doing to that size. Does this seem right?

whatever chart you go by, you start the conversation with, "When you cut them in standard servings sizes of blah blah blah, you should expect to get XX servings out of this cake. If you think you might cut them larger than that, then we should talk about you ordering a larger cake."
