Can anyone tell me if a 6" over 10" cake will serve 20-25 people without skimping on serving size?
Thanks much!

The industry standard is 1x2x4" (Wilton wedding servings) which a lot of CC members use for both wedding AND celebration cakes.

So a 4" high 6" round will serve 12.

And a 4" high 10" round will serve 38

For a total of 50 wedding servings.

Certainly enough for all 20-25 guests to have seconds, if they choose.... icon_smile.gif

Also remember you aren't cutting wedges, you are cutting squares. icon_smile.gif
