I normally don't have this problem but I am making a bridal shower cake and I am thinking the cake might be too small. I will have the wonder mold doll on top of a two layer ten inch. The cake needs to feed 40. According to my chart it is right but the cake looks a little small. What do you think?
According to Earlene, a 10" feeds 30 and Wilton says 38.
Did you already make it? b/c this is kind-of what it'll look like.
I try not to go by Wilton because I think they make the pieces too small. I was thinking the ten inch would be around 30 servings and the wonder mold cake would be about 15. I don't know why I am second guessing myself on everything with this cake. I don'y usually do this.
yEAH, i know what you mean. I don't like Wilton servings either. I go by Earlene's.
I think you'll be fine.
i think it might be an optical illusion seeing the wondermold on top of the 10".. a 10" round is a pretty freakin' big cake... and i promise you, there will be some (maybe several) who won't eat cake, even if it is the only thing being served.. i think you're fine.. even with earlene's chart (10" - 30 servings), the wondermold is going to provide at least 10 (and that's some HUGE slices) so you should be more than ok with the servings
Just think about how many cake mixes you used (if you use cake mixes). When I get nervous about it I think to myself wow I use 5 cake mixes, really this must be enough cake.
I think you will be fine. Post a pic!
