your cake should feed the number of people you expect to have at the wedding–you don’t want to be short on cake. Tell your baker a range if you’re not 100% sure on the guest list yet–125-150 perhaps. You can have a smaller decorated cake and have the rest as sheet cake in the same flavor to save on cost if you want, but definitely have enough so that if everyone wants a slice they can get one.

Our number is also 125 and we will have a three layer cake that will feed 150 or more. You can never have too much cake In My Humble Opinion. 😉

We were expecting 225 and I ordered a cake for 200.  I didn’t plan on saving the top tier, but there ended up being more than enough cake to do so.  The reception venue always seems to cut the cake so small that you should have enough even if you under order.
