Portion Guide

The cake portion guide below shows the approximate number of portions a single tier round or square cake will provide.

Cakes are approximatley 3.5" deep and the below serving guide is based on cakes being cut into 1" x 1" pieces (finger portions) or 2" x 1" pieces (dessert portions). Please add together tier sizes to work out how many portions a wedding cake will serve. For sponge celebration cakes, such as Birthday cakes, allow for dessert sized portions or maybe even larger slices!
