Besides the tear-jerking vows, the gorgeous dress, and, of course, the happy newly-wed couple, our favorite thing about weddings is no doubt the sumptuous, decadent wedding cake! We’re not alone either – just about everyone looks forward to enjoying a piece of wedding cake at the reception, including your guests. The only trouble is finding the right size of cake that will both serve each guest and satisfy your tastes (and your wallet!).
Luckily, making sure that each of your guests receives a piece of cake can be easy once you know how many guests each tier of your cake will serve. Just calculate how many guests are coming to your special day and configure the sizes of your cake tiers.
We have a handy cake-serving guide below that will help take all of the guesswork out! Additionally, we offer 6-inch, 8-inch, 10-inch, and 12-inch tiers, which can be combined into various shapes and sizes to accommodate just about every guest list, no matter how lavish or intimate.
6-inch cake: serves approximately 10 guests
8-inch cake: serves between 20-24 guests
10-inch cake: serves between 30-38 guests
12-inch cake: serves between 45-56 guests
These tiers of cake can be combined so that you can get the perfect amount of cake to serve your guests.
Oh, and don’t forget to save the top tier of cake for yourself! This is traditionally meant for you and your spouse to enjoy, whether it’s the day after your wedding or on your one-year anniversary.
