This is a guide to approximately how many portions you can expect from cakes of different sizes:
|Cake size in inches||Approx. 2" x 1" party portions||Approx. 1" x 1" finger portions|
|5" round / 4" square||7||14|
|6" round / 5" square||10||20|
|7" round / 6" square||15||30|
|8" round / 7" square||20||40|
|9" round / 8" square||27||54|
|10" round / 9" square||34||68|
|11" round / 10" square||45||90|
|12" round / 11" square||50||100|
Party portions are perhaps best for family gatherings or where cake is being served as dessert at a wedding reception (in this instance you may wish to cater for even larger 2″ x 2″ portions). Finger portions are perhaps best for large buffets or children’s party bags.
Remember to allow extra for second helpings (especially if you are offering more than one flavour), or if you would like any left to enjoy after the event.
Multi-tiered cakes usually have a 2 or 3 inch difference between tiers depending on design and portions required.
Cakery Bay offers a bespoke service with each cake being designed and handmade to order. Cakes are therefore individually priced according to requirements and will depend on size, flavour and complexity of design. As a guide:
A single tier sponge celebration cake to serve 15 party/30 finger portions starts from £75. Novelty shaped cakes and some decoration such as handmade sugar flowers and figures are at additional cost.
Wedding cakes usually consist of 4 layers of cake in each tier to give extra height to your centrepiece. The prices below are a guideline to different sized wedding cakes including delivery and set-up at your venue within a 25 mile radius (cakes can be delivered further afield). Some decoration such as handmade sugar flowers are at additional cost which would be discussed with you.
