So I have a bride who wants a cake for 125 people. Now if I go by wilton standards, it comes up under or over the amount. But that's not my question....it says for a 2inch thick cake. Typically wedding cakes are not just 2 inches thick. Mine will be about 4 inches. So do i double each size cake for the servings? I'm so confused. Pleeeeasse oh pleeeassse some one help me icon_cry.gificon_cry.gificon_cry.gificon_cry.gificon_cry.gif

Well, my Wilton chart (I just looked again) says the servings are for a 2 layer cake and each layer is baked in a 2" deep pan. Therefore the tier is 4" tall. Standard height. A 6/10/14 = 120. Close enough. Or do a 6/9/12 = 100 plus a groom's cake. That assumes serving the top tier, as I give my brides a gift certificate for a free anniversary tier.
