I am making a cake for a baby shower and I don't know what size cakes I would need to feed 40 people. If I look at the Wilton chart it says that a 9 and 7" cake will do it. But my dilemma is, I am sure most people don't know how to cut wedding size cake servings. Most people would just cut from center  to side and would probably cut them about 1 to 2" thick. Have any of you run into this and if so how did you fix it?

to me it's up to the baker to determine the size of the serving they sell and to communicate this to their clients


just tell them how to cut the cake


once they cut a 2" serving out of a 7 or a 9 they will realize that's a huge serving for a two layer cake


a lot of the ladies at the shower would not want a slice that big either--


it's not like cutting a 9x13 in half for 15 year old boys


i tell them to cut the cake in sections 2inches wide and cut one inch servings from each section


if they want bigger servings per guest they order more cake
