I am pretty new at cake decorating. My friend has asked me to make her wedding cake for next summer and she thinks there will be about 300 people attending, she wants square, tiered cakes. How many and what sizes should I make? Also, how many people will a sheet cake serve?
HEre's the wilton wedding chart that I use: http://www.wilton.com/wedding/wedding-cakes/wedding-cake-data.cfm
HEre's how to cut a cake to achieve those servings: http://www.cateritsimple.com/id10.html
HEre's pics of cut pieces of 1x2x4 cake servings: http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1156785
HEre's a thread that explains how to figure servings for a sheet cake: http://forum.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-647915-math.html
And definitely order SPS for your support system for that big cake!
great! thanks so much!
