We did a cutting cake and some cupcakes.  We anticipated around 20-25 people but had about 16 at the reception.  We purposely got a lot of cupcakes because my husband wanted to take them home after the wedding.

We’ll probably go with this cake design (approx 50-60 guests):

Sorry this pic is huge, but this was my cake for 70 people – we had a TON left over…I would probably go with a 2 tier cake for the number of guests you’re having unless you like the 3 tier look. I only paid 100 for my cake, so it was worth it for the 3 tier because I liked the look over a 2 tier.

mandb122 – I love your cake and cupcakes!! Any idea how many inches across that cake is? Also, did you buy that stand? I love the idea of a cake sitting atop some cupcakes.

We had about 40 guests, and did a cake buffet.  I ordered probably twice as much cake as needed, but nobody was disappointed eating the leftovers…

We had petit fours–way cheaper than buying a cake, and just as delicious. Everyone loved them and guests were taking the extras home!

65 guests. We had some of the bottom tier left, but not a ton. I think we had 14, 10 and 6 inch tiers.

This is the picture taken by my sister for our cake (this is not the cake table). It’s for 60 people and we have left over as well.

My wedding will have about 30-40 people I believe.  This cake feeds a bit more than that though, although it’s the smallest my venue offers.
