I got a request to make my first beer can shaped cake. But I'm wondering how do you determine cake servings that would make??

there wouldn't be a miracle serving chart for this...would there?!


Thanks everyone :)

AHi there.

I am a hobby baker planning on making a beer can cake for DH for his bday his year. My plan is to make 4 4" high 8" round cakes and stack them with appropriate support. Based on my measurements of a real beer can this will create a can shape with the correct ratios - I'll carve off a little on the top and maybe bottom to get the shape right. Based on the Wilton party chart I expect this will serve 80. Don't know how many u want to serve but I think you could easily go bigger or smaller keeping with a 2:1 height to width ratio to get the servings you need.

AYes, definitely work with proportion in mind, getting as close to your serving amounts needed as possible. Err on the side of too much, of course.
