I've seen so many charts that my eyes are crossed. What I want to know is practically how many ppl can I serve with a 5/8 inch tiered cake.
It's for my adult birthday party and we are expecting no more than about 30 ppl. The 5/8 tier costs $139 plus tax for a premium flavor. The 6/9 costs $168 for a premium flavor. I am having a hard time reconciling the more expensive tiered cake bc it's upwards of $180 when it's all said and done. I'm not getting married....this is expensive. Although I could get more cake from another baker I have my heart set on a cake by these folks. Soooo...can I get away with a 5 inch on top of an 8 inch and not end up as the cake scrooge?
