@skippydarling:  I don’t know how many people that would feed, but if you’re just looking at aesthetics you could always do a false layer in there. Cut some styrofoam in the shape of the cake and frost it. When I thought I wanted a big ass cake as a focal point that was my plan.

We’re ordering cake for 75 guests, not including the top layer that I plan to stash away onto the plane when we leave for our honeymoon, haha. I think it depends on your baker though, how much cake you’ll need. The first baker I talked to, gave much smaller slices than the one we ended up going with. She’s pretty generous with our cake slices and said our cake will be more than enough for everyone.

Had a cake for 350, and had just over 200 guests. We had NO cake leftover, with the exception of our anniversary layer, which my DH ate instead of freezing. :/ Apparently everyone loved the cake…lol. I was told that several guests had 2-3 slices each.
