How big is a wedding cake serving? The charts I have found online seem a little ridiculous. One suggestted that a 6' cake would feed 19 people?!?! I have to do a Wedding for 100 people. I was planning on doing 12', 10' 8' and 6'. However, the bride wants to keep the 6'. Therefore, will the 12', 10' and 8' be enough???

Thanks in advance!

According to the Wilton chart, a 6 inch round serves 12. That's a 1x2 inch piece. A cake that is 12-10-8 should serve 118 so that would be plenty.

Here's a thread that has 3 links you should take a look at: http://cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopicp-6706058.html#6706058

1) Wilton wedding chart to give you number of servings per cake size.
2) My step-by-step photos on how to cut a cake to achieve these servings
3) Pics of 1x2x4 pieces of cake so you can see that "one inch" is NOT "paper thin".
