We skipped the cake in favor of fruit, imported cheeses, and petit fours for 32 people. It was delicious!

@runschicago: I’m so sorry it took me so long to reply, we were away for Thanksgiving!  The little cake is six inches across and we actually rented the stands but they have them that you can buy at different places.

We had 35 guests and all these cheesecakes plus a birthday cake for my nephew. Somehow we managed!

We had 70 guests. Our cake was suppose to feed 75, but I think it was a little small (the 3 white tiers, we saved the top one). We also had 6 pies. We had less than a pie left and maybe like 4-6 slices of cake left.

I know this is a little more than what you were asking but we had 100 guests and here is our cake (we saved the top and had one sheet cake also, just in case, but never even cut into it):

Here’s mine. I totally cheated tho, cos I served this, which was red velvet, plus a sheet cake of a different flavor and there was a ton left over. There were about 80 people, total, including the wedding party/pastor.

I think we’ll probably have something like this for about 30-40 people.  We’ll also have about 6 other desserts including pies, tiramisu, creme brulee, etc.  

 

Our venue is making the cake… it will have real flowers instead of the frosting ones.  If you search for 2-tiers wedding cakes, you can get a lot of ideas for smaller weddings.

This is one I really love. We’re going to have a two-layer version of it. 🙂

@microscope: I LOVE this cake as well. I am curious how you worked out a two layer cake with this design as I would need a minimum of three.

@Treejewel19:  The cake hasn’t been made yet 🙂 I bet you could make 3 tiers work. The second pic below might work for 3 tiers (with the hydrangea dome-like one as the top one tier)

We had this cake for 60 guests. 60 cup cakes and the cake we took home to eat on our 1 year anniversary, which we forgot to do, only remembered tonight (week later) so we ate a slice each tonight.
