Cake Servings Calculator

I found this on a cake website.  It allows you to determine how many industry-standard-sized servings (based on the Wilton serving chart) you should get from your cake, depending on the sizes of your tiers.  Try it out!

Unless your cake tiers are an unusual size, you should check the box next to Wilton Wedding 2 inch pans.

Does it work for cupcakes?


Then again... no. Why did I ask that? I think I need to go to bed.

Well, no.  But I've seen a frequent recommendation among cakers to have 1 1/2 cupcakes per guest.

Yes! That's actually really helpful. I knew 2 per would be WAAAAYY too many, so I figured a fraction would do.

 Hi everyone,

Just came across this post and thought I'd share the site I've come across which I use. It's called www.bakingit.com and you can put in all your cake requirements and it will work everything out for you :-)

It's been a brilliant tool in general as I love to bake but for figuring out the best size, shape etc for the amount of guests has been amazing. Plus you can alter the porition sizes. I don't know about you guys but wedding cake portions can be rather small.

Great tool. I didnt want to lay someone to cut our cake so I went with individual cakes for everyone instead
