Can someone help me figure out the Tier sizes I have to make inorder to make a wedding cake that can feed 350 guests??.. She wanted square ones and 4 Tiers... this will be my first time doing a square shaped cake so im not really familiar of sizes vs. how many it can feed?
thank you so muchh!!
Hi. I was just on Wilton's site and found a helpful table for this. Google search Wilton wedding cake servings.
Hope that helps.
Fun With Math.
A square is the easiest cake of all to compute servings. A serving is 1 X 2 X $. So, multiply the length of one side by 1/2 the length of the other side = servings. Therefore an 8" square pan serves
8 (length of one side for the 1" dimension of the serving)
4 (1/2 the length of the other side for the 2" dimension of the serving)
You can compute this for any square or rectangular cake.
leahs is right .... easy to figure square cake servings.
Here's the chart I use to help with that: http://www.wilton.com/wedding/wedding-cakes/wedding-cake-data.cfm
According to the Wilton chart.
10, 12, 14, 16 (~1" space around the bottom of each tier) would equal 348
6, 10, 14, 18 (~2" space around the bottom of each tier) would equal 334
Have you factored in Indydebi's 60% rule? If 350 is the number invited, they would surely have fewer show up, as well as some that wouldn't eat the cake, so either of those #s should give you more than enough.
thank you all so much for the help!! I am now trying to figure out the cost of it...
