I am a home baker and really just do this for family and friends so I don't have alot of experience with halls & restaurants. I have a shower cake to do that the hall will be cutting and serving. If I read the Party cake chart I would need a 12,10 & 8 square for 100 people and if I read the Wedding cake chart that will serve roughly 154 people. I need this cake to serve apprx. 100 people. I am not sure what to bake. That seems like alot of cake for 100 people. Any opinions would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!!!!

I use the wedding servings for all my cakes no matter what the occasion is for. A 6/8/10 square would give you 100 1.5x2x4 in servings

Ummm, Texas, the wedding serving size is 1 X 2 X 4.

Two things about this:

Go by wedding sizes. That should be your standard. Make the cake you need.

Also, since this is for friends and family, I sometimes find it easier to decorate a larger cake with little increased expense. And, friends and family have never complained about extra cake. The 'extra' is the 10" square that my circle would fight over like pit bulls.

Opps, that's what I meant. I'm not completely awake yet.

Thanks everyone for your reponses. I still may have to go 8,10 & 12 because of the shoe mold I bought to use on the top but, I'll have to play with that. I really appreciate the quick reponses!!!!!

Since you mention you're a home baker, I have no idea if you're licensed or not, but if you're not, be sure the venue will permit cakes to come in from unlicensed bakers. Some do, some don't, but you don't want to find that out on delivery day! ;-

Well I went with a 12,9 & 6. That was the sizes I had in square pans so I just went with it. I figured she would have a little left over but, the Venue got all 100 slices out of the 6 & 9. I don't think anyone would have given me that answer....lol Oh well she loved the cake and she had alot to take home! Thanks again for your responses!!
