I'm making my first wedding cake due August 10th. I need to feed 120 people and would like suggestions on what size pans to stack. My thoughts are to use 12", 10", 8" and the 6" for the anniversary cake which I won't include in the feeding count. I've viewed several cake cutting guides and using the event style cut I would only have 119 servings. Does anyone have another suggestion?
It's 118 servings (according to Wilton), but close enough.
In actuality (considering the volume in surface square inches), it serves 120 because the 12" serves one more than the Wilton chart and the 8" serves one more than the Wilton chart. If the bride wants more cake than 118-120 servings, she can order a larger cake, extra cupcakes, or a kitchen cake. If she doesn't wish to order more and they run out of cake, they have the option to cut the top tier.
Thanks and the bride does not want more that 120 servings...so I'm good.
