Best Cake Size Chart and Guide

Best Cake Size Chat and Guide

Birthdays, weddings, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, a baby’s 100th day and many more occasions have one thing in common, which is none other than cakes. Cakes are bought and consumed to celebrate multiple different parties, but how do we know exactly what size to get for a specific number of guests? Surely and more often than not, these are questions we face from time to time. A counter lady at a cake shop or a product page on an online cake shop may not be able to address these doubts completely. Therefore, we are going to share the perfect cake size chart for you today!

Single Layer or Tiered

There are several diverse types of cakes, single or tiered. It is quite apparent that a tiered cake can offer more servings compared to a single layered one. Most cakes nowadays are made with 2 or more layers of cake, so this is a consideration for the total servings available.

Shape

In addition, the shape of cakes is another factor to take note of. Common shapes include square, round, heart-shaped and even hexagonal or octagonal sometimes. Although some odd-shaped creations are appealing to the eye, it is a challenge frequently to portion these cakes equally. Before the cake cutting ceremony begins, have a thought-out plan of how you can portion your cake.

Do also note that a square cake will offer more portions compared to its other shape counterparts. Most of the time, no matter how much planning is done, the result is either too many or too few. An alternative to this can be to use cupcakes as a substitute since they are simple to portion. For a party of 40 pax, 50 cupcakes will suffice. Easy option and no sizing or planning required!

Cake Portion Guide

The above guide can be used to have a better visual understanding of how you can cut your cake for the number of servings shown. Based on our own experience, most parties are approximately about 30 pax. So we will advise our customers to get a round 10 inch cake which is perfect for their party. If you follow the guide above, a round 10 inch cake can yield up to 38 servings!
