When u are making a wedding cake do u make for the total number of people attaining. It seems like a waste of cake. is there a certain percentage u dont count? (this is a free cake for my cousin so i do need to worry about over or under charging the customer). there are 275ppl. whould u make that much cake??? Help...
If they have RSVP's returned for 275 guests then yes I would make a cake to serve 275.
If that's the number of guests invited, than no, I would wait until the RSVP's are in before determining how many servings are needed.
Personally, I would make enough servings for all the guests, if you have a good count (if the number is a guess-usually I find that the number is overestimated by the wedding couple) The way I see it is that for every person who doesn't eat a piece, there is someone who will eat two pieces and the two piece eater can't really be stopped unless you are policing the scene of the crime...i mean cake.

Yes, make it to serve the number of people attending. If some don't eat cake, the others who eat two servings make up for it. You wouldn't want to be the one who decides which percentage of the people aren't going to be served.
Also, one thing you might want to do, if you are not wanting to make a moster-big-freebie cake is to make a smaller wedding cake for your cousin and then make a kitchen cake to provide the extra slices you need.
thanks everyone! I have a feeling its an overestimate but I'm gunna go with it! happy baking!!
just wondering becuz I think its a Pittsburgh thing, do ppl do wedding cookie tables where u guys are? becuz we also have 100 dozen cookies!! 3 8ft tables full. lol!
