hi everyone, i was just contacted about making a cake for my stepdaughters' mothers wedding. since she is a friend i'll be doing this for her wedding gift and she has given me total reign over the design/flavors.
the only thing requested is that is a 3 tier cake and serves 150.
i've only done one other wedding cake for another friend and she told me the exact sizes for everything so i really have no idea what sizes would look best and serve that many.
Here is a calculator based on the Wilton serving charts if you want to play with the numbers:
I checked out both charts...Is it just me or is a 6" cake serving 12 people just a little crazy? IMO, it seems like it would be a stretch to serve 8 people. I have been struggling to determine my serving sizes for a long time. I prefer Earlene's chart over most of them.
A 6" easily serves 12-14. But you don't cut round cakes in wedges - you make straight cuts.
The Wilton charts are absolutely the best to use. They provide ample servings in the standard 8 cubic inches of cake.
Earlene's charts cause you to bake to much cake and if you're selling, those charts will make you lose money. Not cool.
