Hello everyone. I have a customer who wants a topsy cake for her wedding cake. Ok no big deal. She is inviting roughly 125 people...again, no problem. Here's my issue...How do you figure on how much to make for servings. I'm including two cakes that she likes the design of. Nothing is etched in stone yet...we can even do some squares instead of rounds. How do you serve something like these? I mean..from top to bottom some of those are large slices. What do you do? I'm totally lost on figuring servings and just how much to make. Can anyone help me figure this out or give me some ideas? Thank you!!

I have never done any topsy turvy cakes so I can't help you with that part. But for colors I would go with either pastels or the color(s) the bridal party will be wearing, silver/gold.

It looks like pinkcakebox uses the topsy turvy cake pans. You can google topsy turvy cake pans, maybe you can find something on there that will tell you how many each pan will serve. HTH

The only topsy can pan I found in the generic one by Wilton...that's not going to work here.

Anyone else have ideas with figuring servings and how to serve?

Thank you for the information. Those pans are great, a little pricey but a great idea. Will definately have to look more into it. Thanks again.
