Good afternoon, all.

I had my sister's boss request a 2-tier square cake for a 75th birthday. She told me that it needs to feed approximately 70 people and she wanted it to be tiny servings since there would be other desserts.

I figured an 8" and 10" square would be enough. I already baked the 8". Now, she tells me there would be approx. 75 people and the extra dessert are take home gifts. I calculated that the 2-tiers would serve 78 people. A fellow baker said that it would not be enough and that an 8" feeds 20 people and a 10" feeds 50.

Could someone settle this serving size issue for us?

Thank you for your replies. I will tell my client to inform the restaurant to serve wedding size servings and she should have more than enought.
