Hi all

I have been asked by my friend to make her wedding cake and engagement cake. She wants a wedding cake for 150 guests and an engagement cake for 120 with the giant cupcake cake as the top tier.

She would like round cakes. What sizes should I make?

I will offer to make her a 6 inch fresh cake for her anniversary so the whole wedding cake will be served on the night.

I was thinking for the wedding cake a 6/9/12/15 but cannot see on the Wilton chart how much this will serve.

6 = 12
9 = 32
12 = 56
15 = ?

a 14 serves 78 and a 16 serves 100

Then for the engagement cake I was thinking giant cupcake cake plus 8/10/12

I am not sure what the cupcake cake serves but the 8/10/12 serves 118

8 = 24
10 = 38
12 = 56

I would appreciate any thoughts you might have regarding these tier sizes.

The 15" serves 88 (or 88.32)...

the number in the middle of 78 and 100,

half diameter = radius, radius squared (times itself) x Pi (3.14) = surface square inches, surface square inches divided by 2 (2" long serving) = servings total,
