I have to make a wedding cake for next weekend and I want to make sure I am making enough. I have made square wedding cakes, but they seem easier to figure out than round. I have looked at many different charts but a lot of them show different calculations.
It's for a small wedding, 2nd marriage. 45 quests. Bride wants 2 tiers, round. I was thinking 8" & 10". Does that seem right if cake is cut 1x2x4?

Thanks!

Based on Earlenes cake chart http://www.earlenescakes.com/ckserchart.htm
She uses larger severings compared to Wiltons..
The 8 inch and 10 inch will serve 45 people... and not everyone eats cake!
Maybe suggest a batch of cupcakes just incase?

Wilton wedding chart is based on the 1x2x4 servings which is industry standard.

an 8 and 10 inch round will serve 62, so that is plenty of servings.
