I’d get the 20 serving. You already have enough cake to give everyone at the reception. If they’re totally different flavors, I might go for the 40 serving, since people will probably have preferences.

Is there any way the baker could show you how big it’ll be? Or give you measurements?

Go for less. I always see leftover cake at weddings. Especially if you have something other than cake for dessert. Not everyone will eat it.

8 inch square would be 8 inches tall, 8 inches wide, and 8 inches back. It’s not huge, but I’d just go with the 8 inch one. I don’t think it’d be too small by any means.

Companion cube cakes are very cute and fun, but if you want to cut costs maybe do a cake from the same game? the cake is a lie cake. in the photo you can even see the companion cube behind it, and maybe you can get a prop cube to set next to this cake. best of luck, i’m sure he’ll appreciate it no matter what size you make it.

I think the companion cube would be preferred over the lie cake. The cube has sort of become the mascot for that game. I love Portal and I would personally love to see a companion cube cake!

I think 8 inches by 8 inches would still be a good size if you decide to go with the companion cube. The larger cake has barely any extra side size and paying for double the volume when you already have enough cake wouldn’t be worth those two inches IMO.
