I am doing a Superman cake (basic round w/logo on top) for 25 people. I was wondering if I should do a 9inch or a 10inch round cake?

An 8" round actually serves 25 people (if you do the math).

This website will be helpful to you. This lists party sizes, but you can also search for the traditional wedding sizes as well. HTH.

This is the chart I use for all cakes, doesn't matter if it is wedding, birthday or just because. For me it is easier to stick to one chart so I can keep up with all the numbers.

A 8in round serves 24 1x2x4 servings.
A 9in round serves 32 1x2x4 servings.
A 10in round serves 38 1x2x4 servings.

Thank you! I was originally going to do an 8inch, but when I looked at the serving chart, for some reason I thought it said it only served 15. I guess I must have been looking at the wrong cake size!
