I am having twice as many servings as guests, so each guest can have a piece of each flavor. I know all the guests are foodies, so I know the cake will get eaten.

We ordered our cake too early in the planning process…thus, we have an 80-person wedding…and a cake that serves 100.  We had to cut the guest list.  I was originally annoyed that we spent the money for extra cake we don’t need, but hey, we have to have something to eat the morning after the wedding, right?  Right??

@PrncssDva: well yea. and i drew/designed my own cake… so i didnt really think about serving size when i was doing this… and had my mind set that i wanted it to look that way… each tier is different. so yea. lol. im stubborn.

@PrncssDva: We are having two flavors: chocolate cake with cookies and cream mousse and lemon cake with marionberry cream cheese mousse. I am definately going to have two pieces, so I thought our guests would like that option too.

I think you basically HAVE to have at least as many servings as the max potential guests.  You have to plan that everyone will eat a piece.  Your baker should be able to work with you on the size/number of tiers to get as close to that number as possible without going under.
