Hello - question about grooms cake servings. I am doing a wedding cake for approx 150 guests. I read somewhere that you make the grooms cake for less servings, but I am not sure how much. In the past I have made it for about 75% of the guests. Do you think this is to much or not enough? So I guess the real question is, if I am making a wedding cake to feed approx 150 guests, how many servings should my grooms cake be? Everyone is always so helpful here, so I know someone will be able to help me out.

Sorry, I cannot help you out. We do not typically do groom's cakes up here where I'm from. I guess I always thought it was a Southern thing. But I'm interested in learning more about the traditions of groom's cakes, the history of them, etiquette and the like (thus the reason for my very un-helpful post...).

My wedding was in Charleston, SC and we had the groom's cake at the rehersal dinner. It worked out very well. It was a sheet cake with an intricately detailed Monolopy board on top.

I am interested in input on this also. I would think something equal to a 1/2 to 3/4 sheet would be enough but I don't really know.

At least this will get the question back up to the top of the list.

Well, I just had a meeting with the bride and her mother. I am making the wedding cake to feed approx 120 guests, and the grooms cake for 80. So, I guess it just depends on what the bride and groom want.
