    Is cake the only dessert being served?  This is a big factor.  If you have other desserts then a cake for 54 will be MORE than enough.  We had a whole dessert buffet at my wedding so by the time we’d cut the cake I don’t think anyone even had a piece.

    However, if cake is the only dessert I’d go up a size, just so that you don’t have any worries.  NOthing wrong with a littel left over cake.

    I would go for the bigger size, then, to be safe.

    sejf83:  Does the 54 number include you and your fiance? If not, you should order a bigger size to ensure that everyone gets a slice of cake.

    Either way, I always vote for erring on the side of “more cake.” 🙂

    I would go with the bigger size just so you don’t have to worry about it.  If you have leftovers, then someone can take it home.
